Rated PSFs played a major role in completing a measurable portion of the work with specific deliverables associated with the engagements.” Impact Advisors received the highest overall score of 93.5, an aggregate score taken from 25 separate categories.

They have great skill sets and are able to communicate and collaborate well with a variety of staff members and leaders across our organization. Everyone I come in contact with from Impact Advisors is extremely talented. I would say Impact Advisors is superior in their quality.”*
