The HHS Evidence Building Plan, required by the Evidence Act, is a systematic plan for identifying and addressing policy questions relevant to the programs, policies, and regulations of the agency. It identifies, prioritizes, and establishes strategies to develop evidence to answer important short- and long-term strategic questions (i.e., questions about how HHS meets its missions, including about how programs, policies, and regulations function both individually and in combination) and operational questions (i.e., questions about agency operations such as human resources, grant-making, and internal processes). The HHS Evidence-Building Plan covers a four-year period aligned with the strategic plan and that addresses priority questions (i.e., questions relevant for programmatic, operational, regulatory, or policy decision-making) across the entire Department.
