Abstract

Created in 1988, the Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), a program of the U.S. Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), provides knowledge and problem-solving services to improve the productivity, economic competitiveness, and technological capabilities of America's manufacturers, particularly small manufacturers. Since 1996, NIST MEP has used an independent third-party organization to conduct national research with clients who have completed their first projects with local NIST MEP centers. The surveys collect aggregate information on program performance indicators to report to stakeholders, and provide center-specific program performance and impact information for center use.
