Future Services Institute at the University of Minnesota Has New Opportunity

The Future Services Institute is seeking an individual to act as a project manager and become a key resource in the development of a Tribal/Urban American Indian Workforce Strategy. The project will target the engagement of representatives from Tribal governments, urban Indian community and the Department of Human Services and the Department of Employment and Economic Development. The focus will be on creating quality employment services that will support the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)/Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP), and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) programs. At the same time, the goal is to develop a comprehensive employment service matrix that includes other key tribal programs such as Tribal 477 programs and Tribal Employment Rights Office (TERO).
The goal is to align employment training services and to increase employment opportunities within tribal and urban Indian communities within Minnesota. This project is facilitated by the Future Services Institute (FSI) http://futureservicesinstitute.umn.edu/), within the Humphrey School of Public Affairs and University of Minnesota, and is funded by MN Department of Human Services.

2016 Year in Review

#HappyNewYear from #BPC! Koolamalsi njoos wuk niiallogamaatit ! Wuli wulahkameew wulahlokayaan wuk wulakkuniimeew!

This is my humble attempt in my Original language (Lunaape-Munsee dialect) to say, “Hello Greetings colleagues, relatives, and friends! It is a beautiful and good day to do good work and say good things!”

BPC’s 2016 has been a bountiful year for us and without the help of many we wouldn’t continue to be successful, have such a good time, learned so much, and helped to support/empower the communities, people, projects, and partners we’re so blessed to collaborate with.

Forgive me if I’ve missed anyone in the video. Hopefully we’ve expressed our gratitude many times and in many ways in 2016. It is with happiness we reflect on our 2016 and look forward to the seeds lovingly planted which will grow in 2017.

Watch Bowman’s PhD Oral Defense!

Please like this video and subscribe to the channel. We will be adding additional clips from Nicky’s oral defense. Stay tuned!

In this clip, Nicole R. Bowman Farrell of Bowman Performance Consulting introduces herself at her PhD oral defense at the University of Wisconsin Madison. She starts with a traditional greeting in her native language. Nicky thanks the Creator, her elders, and those present before beginning her defense.

Dr. Nicole Bowman of Shawano, Wisconsin received her doctorate from the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Education’s Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis on May 15, 2015. Dr. Bowman’s passion for education and her determination to make public education more responsive to the needs of Native American students is apparent from her work as owner and founder of Bowman Performance Consulting (www.bpcwi.com).  As a community member of the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican Indians, she plans to use her degree to educate public policy makers regarding multi-jurisdictional partnerships and systemic strengthening of Tribal and public educational agencies efforts to empower and improve educational outcomes for Native American students attending public schools.

As her news interview with the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Education explains, Bowman will be only the fourth person who self-identifies as Native American to earn a Ph.D. from the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis over the past decade. Bowman is quick to point out that having a Ph.D. won’t change who she is or the work that she does as an applied social justice researcher and evaluator. “But I do think it will make a lot of people more comfortable when they work with me because in the context of academic studies, a Ph.D. matters,” she adds. “Receiving my Ph.D. from the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis will allow me to be able to jump into the big pond of educational policy debate — and be taken seriously.” *School of Education’s blog can be found here: http://education.wisc.edu/soe/news-events/news/2015/05/08/bowman-s-drive-to-ph-d–fueled-by-desire-to-improve-education-for-indigenous-students

BOWMAN PERFORMANCE CONSULTING: Summary Capabilities Statement

WHO WE ARE:
Bowman Performance Consulting (BPC) is a professional consulting and scientific research & evaluation company.
Located in Shawano, WI BPC (www.bpcwi.com) provides services to a national clientele from the public, private, non-profit and tribal sectors. BPC gathers measurable and meaningful data from clients and their stakeholders/customers so that individuals, programs, and organizations can use the data, improve performance, and build capacity from our value-added services in order to function more efficiently and effectively for the short and long-term. BPC services fall under four main categories: research, development, implementation, and evaluation.
At BPC we envision a better world that serves the needs of all people in a culturally sensitive, appropriate, and academically rigorous way. When people are given the skills they need and have access to relevant information they remember and understand they are engaged and empowered through the services, processes, and deliverables that BPC facilitates with them. At BPC we help people, organizations, and systems build capacity with the goal of helping them to become self-sufficient.
Examples of services: feasibility studies, needs assessments, focus groups, surveying, No Child Left Behind support and compliance, program development, organizational improvement design, developing cultural/contextual relevance for programs and training, data analysis, program monitoring, organizational accreditation/certification, curriculum development for individualized materials and/or training, leadership training, customer service training, communication training, strategic planning, literature reviews, qualitative/quantitative (mixed method) research studies, and program, organizational, and systems evaluation.

WHAT WE SELL:

BPC services fall under four main categories: research, development, implementation, and evaluation.
1. Research services involves studies to document baseline information; test ideas, programs, or theories; and/or to find innovative solutions to problems. Examples: feasibility studies, policy studies, workforce studies, literature reviews, customer service studies, or market studies/analysis.
2. Development services include creation of new policies, programs, organizational, or systemic processes that support long-range efforts by the organization. Examples: professional development for staff; board or leadership training; policy and handbook development; creation of a strategic plan; or development of funding proposals.
3. Implementation services are better known as technical assistance and these services help the client to fully develop ideas, programming, or organizational structures. Examples include: implementation support for new grants or programs; monitoring and providing feedback on new policy/procedural implementation; working on certifications/accreditations; or providing support for implementation of a new strategic plan or workforce practice learned through trainings.
4. Evaluation services help the client understand the short and long-term impacts by developing common performance metrics and indicators so changes in the human, program, organizational, or systems are documented. Data is generated for intended changes to document baselines and so short-term impacts are noted and supports or hindrances for changes are known (process/implementation data). Trend data is gathered over a longer time frame to know the annual or longitudinal (multiple year) impacts of programs, policies, procedures, or other organizational/systemic strategies (outcome data). Examples include: needs assessments; external grant evaluations; setting up monitoring/performance systems; or data retreats using evaluation or research data generated by the client and/or BPC to make data-driven and strategic decisions about programming, workforce, or organizational initiatives.

WHO WE SELL TO:

BPC provides services to the public, private, non-profit, and Tribal sectors and our primary target markets are educational, academic, and Native American communities. We work in a “multi-jurisdictional” manner to support collaborative projects that enrich all who participate. Often these customers work together on joint projects but have lowered capacity, working knowledge, practical experiences, and/or sensitivity to the culture, context, or community needs that the projects are being implemented into. BPC serves to work “with” clients and not “on” them in order to build authentic partnerships and active participants in the project. Through grant funded projects (public and non-profit sources); government sponsored initiatives (Public and Tribal Governments); and private sector partnerships BPC provides services where these target markets all meet by building capacity, strengthening coalitions, and supporting effective and evidence or research based programming. BPC’s multijurisdictional projects and services have been carried out through projects in the disciplines of: health, education, human services, justice, economic development, transportation, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). In summary, BPC’s value-added client services allow the greatest opportunity for success so positive changes can be institutionalized and sustained after the project ends.

FINANCIAL SUMMARY:

BPC generates revenue through services on a fee-per-client basis not contingency. Seeking long-term projects (3 to 5 years), BPC has had organizational stability since 2001 through multi-year grant evaluations, research projects, and technical assistance/development projects. Since 2001, annual organizational revenues have ranged from $350,000 to $800,000. BPC tracks how projects are garnered and over 80% are by repeat/word-of-mouth customers and/or due to minority/specialized certification procurement/contract award requirements. BPC is often hired as a subcontractor on large multi-million, multi-state, and/or multi-year government, non-profit, or educational projects. Beyond our strong educational training and solid work experience, BPC is also a state/nationally certified woman, minority, disadvantaged, scientific, and Native American firm. Consequently, strategic partnership building, professional services, on-or under budget deliverables, and marketing are important to BPC’s overall financial health. BPC’s collaborative partnerships and innovative marketing includes electronic, traditional, presentations, publications, and working pro bono with colleagues on task forces, committees, boards, and through presenting/publishing.
