Over the past few weeks, the research center in which I work published three different studies evaluating the role of economic development programs in Indiana. The results of our work held some surprises and some not-so-surprising findings.
The first study evaluated the Indiana Economic Development Corp.’s suite of services. We made a number of small recommendations, suggesting, for example, that group improve some website offerings, but it is clear that the development corporation is offering among the most up-to-date economic development activities.
Moreover, the National Governor’s Association recently commissioned a study that strongly recommended that other states adopt the type of public-private partnership in state economic development efforts which is in use here in Indiana.
