In early 2013, the leadership of the Federal Voting Assistance Program FVAP commissioned the RAND National Defense Research Institute to undertake a collaborative, multiyear project known formally as FVAP and the Road Ahead. The project was established to assist FVAP in aligning its strategy and operations to better serve its mission and stakeholders and to strengthen FVAPs capacity to set its own course, embrace change, and communicate its role in the voting community. This report focuses on the collaborative development and application of the logic model, which served as the analytical foundation for the project. It describes the underlying method and frames the approach in generalizable step-by-step terms, drawing examples from the project with FVAP. The report derives from a more-detailed report that more fully documents both the process and its results, including recommendations, guidance, and organizational change.
