M. Davis & Company, Inc. (MDAC) was established in 1985, and is now one of the largest minority-owned and operated full-service research and evaluation firms in the United States. Our diverse professional staff and consultants include former private sector executives, government administrators, and academics who possess expertise in social science research, market research, program evaluation and development, policy and strategic planning and implementation.

The MDAC team offers proven, reliable, high-quality services to help meet our clients’ objectives by offering actionable information and insight to executives, program managers, policy makers, and advocates throughout the lifecycle of the engagement. Our team boasts extensive experience in working with multicultural communities and other populations where English is not the primary language and has successfully worked with hard-to-reach populations such as low-income, homeless, elderly, and individuals with physical and mental disabilities.

***** During the course of its 32-year history, MDAC has refined its overall management system to permit the simultaneous execution and successful completion of multiple engagements. We understand that large-scale intensive projects are successful when there is frequent periodic communication, a specific work plan, ongoing training, experienced staff, clearly delineated roles, responsibilities, protocols and reporting and monitoring systems.

***** We provide research-based insights that are analytical, strategical, tactical, operational, and impactful. Our clients use these insights to effect innovation, measure risk, assess program effectiveness, improve outcomes, initiate new approaches, simplify processes, integrate technology into their processes and refine communications.
