Reports and Publications
Want to see samples of our work?
The work that we do for clients is always confidential. But when clients are happy to share the resulting reports and publications publicly, so are we!
Click on the links below to see sample reports and publications completed for clients, as well as JVA-authored white papers and issue briefs. Please note that these reports are illustrative of the type of work that we do, and that each report is different, depending on your needs and requests.
During our kickoff meeting with you for your project, we’ll help you define what kind of deliverable will be most useful to you, your organization and other audiences you’ll want to share it with.

JVA is honored to have partnered with Women’s Foundation of Colorado (WFCO) to develop their strategic plan. Over the course of a year, JVA developed WFCO’s 2017-2021 plan, focused around the question, “how can we create better economic opportunities for Colorado women to progress toward prosperity?” Our team engaged with nearly 1,300 women across the state to gather input about economic needs. This work, paired with extensive input and facilitated sessions within the community and with WFCO produced a single vision for the foundation’s work, refocused their mission, strengthened core values and provided important insights to aid in maximizing WFCO’s impact for the future of women in our state.
GCPLD hired JVA Consulting, LLC (JVA) to conduct this review and develop a comprehensive marketing plan. To gather data for the plan, JVA reviewed Garfield County demographics to determine the size and key characteristics of various population segments. JVA also conducted user surveys both online and in person, and facilitated six community meetings to engage with users directly on the topic of community needs and interests, and how the library might address them. Finally, JVA evaluated GCPLD’s existing marketing materials and made recommendations for ways to improve and streamline those efforts. You are invited to read the results of JVA’s work, either the executive summary or the complete 104-page report, both located online at www.gcpld.org. Print copies of each are also available at your local branch library for your review.

Report for the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF), Colorado Department of Humans Services (CDHS), Connect for Health Colorado (C4) and the Governor’s Office of Information Technology (OIT)
In March 2016, the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF), Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS), Connect for Health Colorado (C4) and the Governor’s Office of Information Technology (OIT) contracted with Joining Vision and Action (JVA) to conduct an evaluation of the current client correspondence letters that are sent throughout Colorado, reporting on the essential status of food assistance and medical assistance. These letters, the Notice of Action (NOA), the Income and Eligibility verification System (IEVS), the Redetermination/Recertification Notice (RRR) and the Verification Checklist (VCL) were provided to JVA as template letters that are often used in client correspondence. The team of HCPF, CDHS, C4 and OIT recognized the need for updated letters that reflect desired changes by those who see them (the end-user/reader) and those who are set to help them across the state (stakeholders).
