About Us

The Office of Evidence and Impact (OEI) was established in the fall of 2019. OEI fosters a culture of data and evidence-based policymaking and budgeting that pursues the best outcomes for Tennesseeans. With a vision to empowering decision making that serves every Tennessean, OEI uses data to inform decision makers and ensure we invest in programs that work.
