WHAT WE DO
As the information center of COA, the Organization Strategies and Research Department conducts studies, surveys, and researches that help make a conducive environment for orgs to grow and develop.
The department also serves as the main consultant with regards to the data management and performance evaluation systems of the orgs, and provides feasible recommendations as well as performance metrics to cluster and org projects.
Lastly, the department coordinates the lobbying efforts made by the council, from the studies it conducts.
