Survey of Public Media Station Education Strategies and Programs

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) seeks the services of a qualified researcher (“Contractor”) to conduct a study of local public media stations’ education strategies and programs, to assess stations’ needs, capacities, and current strategies. CPB’s objective in commissioning this survey is to inform its strategic planning around station education programs and to share survey outcomes with stations. Contractor must create a brief (approximately 30 questions) survey, in consultation with CPB, that uses branching questions to capture the respective data of public television, public radio, and joint public television/radio licensee stations. Contractor must also manage the process of data collection, analyze the resulting data, and provide a complete data set to CPB. CPB expects Contractor to provide CPB with a full set of survey findings in an electronic format such as PowerPoint, and to create a publication-quality report with a detailed analysis of the data that CPB may use to share key findings with stations and key stakeholders.
