IMPAQ International, LLC
With research studies, program evaluations, implementation assistance, surveys and data collection, technical solutions, and communications strategies, IMPAQ helps governments, businesses, foundations, non-profits, and universities evaluate and enhance their programs and policies.
In 2001, Jacob and Sharon Benus founded IMPAQ International based on their simple belief that exceptional people committed to rigorous research can drive the design and implementation of policies and programs that improve the lives of real people.
Jacob and Sharon’s belief in the power of bringing together exceptional people to do rigorous work to improve people’s lives remains the driving force behind IMPAQ more than a decade after its founding.
However, what was once a boutique firm is now a company of over 400 employees, with headquarters in Columbia, MD, satellite offices in Washington, DC, Oakland, CA, Boston, MA, Seattle, WA, and a field office in Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina.
Today, IMPAQ’s teams collaborate with public sector clients, such as the U.S. Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, as well as private sector clients such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, to address some of the most critical challenges of this time - from the shift to value-based medicine to reducing the unemployment rate and putting Americans back to work.
IMPAQ is recognized as one of the best places to work in their region and is known for its hallmark entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to diversity.
IMPAQ continues to grow, diversifying their offerings and services, expanding into new sectors and industries, serving new clients, and building on the productive relationships established with clients over the years.
IMPAQ has undergone many changes since its founding, but there has always been one constant: exceptional people committed to rigorous research can make a meaningful difference in people’s lives across the globe.

Their founding, in 2001, was based on a belief that exceptional people committed to rigorous research can improve the lives of real people. This is still true today, even as they have grown to a professional staff of nearly 400 individuals located in seven offices across the world.
When they assemble a team, they bring together experts from diverse backgrounds and perspectives to consider a challenge, and as a result, their solutions are holistic and highly responsive to their clients’ changing needs.
They are proud that the insights, surveys, and technology that they provide help their clients make a meaningful, real world impact – this is their mission.See more
