Public Policy Institute of California


The Public Policy Institute of California is a prominent, non-partisan think tank researching economic, educational and political issues in the state of California.

PPIC wanted an efficient way for users to access their numerous publications and support the extensive media coverage given to their research.

Third Strand helped PPIC manage input from many different constituencies within their organization, designing and building a site that reflects PPIC’s serious, academic ethos. The resulting site enables users to easily navigate a large number of pages and publications as well as make online purchases. The content management system that Third Strand built allows PPIC’s administrative staff to manage the site’s extensive content without relying on outside consultants. The result has been a dramatic increase in the number of people using the site.
