The Bipartisan Policy Center is a non-profit organization that combines the best ideas from both parties to promote health, security, and opportunity for all Americans. BPC drives principled and politically viable policy solutions through the power of rigorous analysis, painstaking negotiation, and aggressive advocacy.
As a leading Washington, DC-based think tank that actively promotes bipartisanship, BPC works to address the key challenges facing the nation. Our policy solutions are the product of informed deliberations with former elected and appointed officials, business and labor leaders, and academics and advocates who possess views from across the political spectrum. We are currently focused on policy issues related to health, energy, national and homeland security, the economy, education, immigration, infrastructure, governance, and evidence-based policymaking.

The Evidence Project brings together leading experts around the generation and use of evidence in policymaking processes; provides advice and expertise on implementation options and strategies related to statistical, evaluation, privacy, and science policy; and support efforts to develop legislation, regulations, policies, and standards to improve the use of evidence in the country.
