Overview
Contracting with Responsive Management is easier than ever before. U.S. federal agencies and other eligible organizations can procure Responsive Management services through the General Service's Administration (GSA) Federal Supply Schedules program by using the Mission Oriented Business Integrated Services (MOBIS) Schedule. GSA established this Federal Supply Schedule to create an expedited procurement process by pre-qualifying contractors that provide professional management services. This streamlined system makes it faster and easier for you to select qualified contractors who best support your needs. GSA has already reviewed and approved Responsive Management's qualifications, cost schedules, small and disadvantaged business subcontracting plans, and other contract requirements so that you don't have to.
The MOBIS Schedule facilitates contracting to help you improve your management and organizational effectiveness through the use of specialized consulting, surveying, and facilitation services. Under MOBIS, an agency client may ask Responsive Management to develop or conduct:
  • Telephone surveys
  • Mail surveys
  • Personal interviews
  • Park/outdoor recreation intercepts
  • Web-based surveys
  • Focus groups
  • Needs assessments
  • Literature reviews
  • Data collection
  • Marketing plans
  • Communications plans
  • Outreach plans
  • Business plans
  • Programmatic evaluations
  • Policy analysis

Descriptions of Special Item Numbers
Below are descriptions of the Special Items Numbers (SINs) for which Responsive Management is approved for GSA contracting:
871-1 Consulting Services
Services required under this SIN involve providing expert advice, assistance, guidance, or counseling in support of agencies' management, organizational, and business improvement efforts. This may also include studies, analyses, and reports documenting any proposed developmental, consultative, or implementation efforts.

Contractors shall assist with, and/or perform all phases of the survey process to include, but not limited to: planning survey design sampling; survey development, pretest/pilot surveying, survey database administration, assessing reliability and validity of data, determining proper survey data collection methodology, administering surveys using various types of data collection methods and analyses of quantitative and qualitative survey data.

Telephone Surveys
Telephone surveying is a method of public opinion polling where telephone numbers are randomly generated to contact potential respondents, either from the general population or from a known sample (for example members of an organization or license holders). Responsive Management is the leader in the use of telephone surveys in natural resource and outdoor recreation issues, having performed over 1,000 research projects over the past 18 years. It specializes in researching only natural resource and outdoor recreation issues, and its interviewers conduct surveys only on natural resource and outdoor recreation issues including wildlife, fisheries, and parks, and environmental/conservation issues.
Questionnaire Design and Pretesting
Responsive Management designs the survey instrument collaboratively based on close consultation, discussions, and reviews with the client. Responsive Management conducts all phases of survey development based on client input and past experience with similar studies.
Telephone Interviewing Procedures and Facilities
High-quality data collection is critical to good survey research. Responsive Management has designed a state-of-the-art telephone interviewing facility that stresses the importance of highly trained telephone interviewers with experience conducting computer-assisted telephone interviews and who work under the close supervision of Responsive Management's professional staff. Because Responsive Management specializes in researching natural resource issues, its interviewers conduct surveys only on natural resource and outdoor recreation issues.
To ensure the data collected is of the highest quality, interviewers are trained according to the standards established by the Council of American Survey Research Organizations. The project supervisor conducts in-depth project briefings with the interviewing staff prior to working on the specific project. Interviewers are instructed on survey goals and objectives, type of study, handling of survey questions, interview length, termination points and qualifiers for participation, reading of interviewer instructions, reading of survey, reviewing of skip patterns, and probing and clarifying techniques necessary for specific questions on the survey instrument. Methods of instruction include lecture, role-playing, and video training.
The Survey Center Manager and Assistant Manager oversee the data collection process. The Managers randomly monitor telephone workstations without the interviewers' knowledge as to which interviews will be monitored. Monitoring allows the project supervisor to maintain strict quality control over the data collection process. The managers and statisticians edit each completed survey to check for clarity, understanding, completeness, and form.
Mail and Internet Surveys
Responsive Management operates a state-of-the-art, multi-modal research center with the experience and facilities for the creation, implementation, and interpretation of survey research by mail, phone, and web. Mail surveys entail using various postal or postal like (i.e., fed ex) delivery techniques to deliver pencil and paper surveys to potential respondents. Mail surveys are effective in a variety of settings, most notably when contacting named respondents (for instance members of a club), when contacting respondents who are unlikely or unwilling to respond by phone or other media, or when delivering some sort of stimulus about which a response will be measured (for instance, through a visual appeal for marketing).
Personal Interviews
Responsive Management has knowledge and experience in a variety of qualitative research methods used to gain more robust perspectives on issues, to test the effectiveness of messages, and to identify important issues for further exploration. Personal interviews are an appropriate qualitative data collection methodology in a variety of settings including exploration of issues in sensitive areas such as internal evaluations or internal satisfaction studies. Personal interviews allow participants to share qualitative information in a manner that allows freer expression of ideas and opinions.
Personal interviews are an excellent method when there are highly knowledgeable individuals whose expertise is needed for the understanding of an issue prior to survey design, prior to focus group design, or as an elucidating factor for a complex phenomenon. Personal interviews allow for open conversation between Responsive Management staff and individuals in a one-on-one setting. Responsive Management has performed many personal interviews in a variety of settings, for example, to evaluate internal and external program implementation, and for a range of clients such as federal, state, and conservation organizations.
Focus Groups
Responsive Management conducts focus groups using state-of-the-art research methodology for qualitative research. The preferred methodology for most focus groups is formal. One-way mirrors and unobtrusive observation occur at established and approved focus group facilities. For a complete discussion of the uses of focus group research, see Morgan and Krueger (1997). An experienced, trained moderator leads the focus groups, as unobtrusively as possible, through a discussion guide and looks for new insights into why individuals feel the way they do about particular issues.
