Evaluation of the Strong Cities, Strong Communities (SC2) Teams Pilot: Final Report. A5.2.1 Composition of the SC2 Team


At the start of implementation, the SC2 team in Memphis consisted of two full-time members (including the SC2 team lead) who relocated to Memphis for the initiative, three part-time members already located in Memphis, seven part-time members located in Washington, DC, and elsewhere, and seven advisory members, also located in Washington, DC, and elsewhere. Thus, the on-the-ground SC2 team presence at the start of implementation consisted of five individuals, representing three federal agencies: the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and the Small Business Administration (SBA). The seven remote team members at the start of the initiative were from the Departments of Justice (DOJ), Health and Human Services (HHS), Labor (DOL), and Treasury; the General Services Administration (GSA); and HUD.

Over time, the SC2 team membership changed substantially. As of July 2012, about 10 months into the initiative, four of the original members, including the SC2 team lead, had transitioned off the team, and another six members had joined—one full-time and five part-time. By January 2013, the team consisted of 2 full-time members, 12 part-time members, and 4 advisory members. The second full-time SC2 team lead joined the team in January 2013.

Exhibit A5.1 summarizes the federal agencies represented in the SC2 team over the first 18 months of the initiative.
