Centre for Research in Schemes and Policies (CRISP) is an organisation formed by 10 senior civil servants, who have served at the level of Secretary to Government of India, for working with the State and Central Governments for designing/redesigning schemes and policies in the Social Sector. It desires to make large-scale impact by conducting ‘concurrent evaluation’ of schemes, setting up monitoring systems, and drafting policies covering rural, urban development, poverty alleviation, education, health and institution building. The objective of CRISP is to bring systematic reforms, thus shifting focus from input- oriented implementation to outcome-focused roll-out.

CRISP proposes to set up a highly accomplished and professional team with expertise in social sector, data analytics and report writing for accomplishing its objectives.
