This Note contains the 13 case studies used as the basis for research reported in R-3172-HHS. The case studies are concerned with the uses of demonstrations of agencies in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the means by which these agencies plan programs; solicit, select, and evaluate performers; implement projects; and disseminate and aid in the use of their results. The goal of the research was to clarify the roles that demonstrations can play in HHS programs and to identify management practices that may enhance the contributions that demonstrations make to achieving HHS objectives.
