M&A: American Institutes for Research to Acquire IMPAQ, broadens Federal Health footprint

“The American Institutes for Research (AIR), one of the world’s leading behavioral and social science research organizations, has agreed to acquire IMPAQ, LLC, a global policy research, analytics and implementation firm with a strong presence in the health and workforce sectors, as well as other areas.” 

“AIR, a non-profit founded in 1946, works with federal, state, and local government agencies, philanthropies and other organizations to conduct research and evaluation and provide technical assistance in the areas of education, health and workforce development, in the U.S. and abroad. Much of AIR’s work is in education, and the acquisition of IMPAQ will allow the company to grow its presence in other key areas across the life span.”  

“This transaction brings together two mission-focused organizations with similar values, deep expertise and diverse portfolios of work,” said David Myers, AIR’s president and CEO. “The leadership and staff of both companies understand the power of generating and using high-quality research and evidence-based practices that contribute to a better, more equitable world, domestically and globally. I look forward to opportunities to bring deeper perspectives and experience to the challenges facing society today and in the future.” 

“IMPAQ, a private company founded in 2001, conducts rigorous research and implementation in the areas of health and workforce development, as well as the education, international and human services sectors. They also have expertise in advanced analytics and the use of technology, including artificial intelligence and machine learning, as well as training and learning solutions…”
