Who We Are

Bright Ideas Indiana is a project of the Governor’s Management Performance Hub (MPH), the Indiana Family and Social Service Administration (FSSA), and the Indiana Office of Technology (IOT). It highlights promising practices by Indiana nonprofits to encourage peer-to-peer learning and innovation. The state agencies commissioned the Sagamore Institute for Policy Research (SIPR) to conduct research statewide to identify excellent social service nonprofit organizations.
