We analyze and design contributions to the public debate and provide policy recommendations aimed at driving economic and social development and the elimination of market distortions. These projects typically include an understanding of how the relevant sector functions, the identification of bottlenecks that slow its development or the achievement of long-term policy objects, a review of international best practice, the application of economic theory, and the measurement of the costs and effects of available policy alternatives.
Evaluation of the design, implementation, and results of the BonoGas program
The objective of this study, commissioned by the Peruvian Supervisory Board for Investment in Energy and Mines (Osinergmin), was to evaluate the design, implementation, and results of the BonoGas program, aimed at financing residential natural gas hookups in lower-income areas of Lima, Callao, and Ica. For this project, a number of techniques were used, including: (i) an exhaustive review of the program’s rules and regulations, as well as other documents helpful in studying the design and implementation of BonoGas; (ii) interviews with actors involved in the implementation of this service; (iii) and 3,200 household surveys, including both the beneficiary group and a control group, to identify the effects of the program.
Evaluation of the design, implementation, and results of the Tambos program
The general objective of this study was to evaluate the design, processes, and results of the Tambos program (now a permanent option of the National PAIS Program). Tambos are modern service provider platforms that aim to make the government’s available services more accessible to residents living in rural areas far from major cities. For this evaluation, qualitative data was gathered through more than 130 interviews and fifteen participatory workshops with users of the program’s services in the regions of Cajamarca, Cusco, Lima, Loreto, and Puno. Thanks to the evaluation, recommendations were identified to be used as an input in creating a commitment matrix, in consensus with the program.
Evaluation of the design of Budget Program 093: Productive Development for Businesses
This study, commissioned by the Ministry of Industry and Fisheries (Produce), aimed to evaluate the relevance of Budget Program 093, specifically the way in which its activities and products help achieve the program’s objectives. In this case, that means increased productivity among micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises. To achieve this, an exhaustive review was performed of the program’s design and implementation documents, with over twenty interviews with officials from different areas of Produce and the Technological Institute for Production (ITP). Additionally, similar programs in Latin America were reviewed. Thanks to the study, opportunities for improvement and specific recommendations were established to correct weaknesses and improve the program’s design.
Evaluation of the emergency and natural disaster response strategy of the MIDIS’s social programs and other public actions
This study, commissioned by the World Bank, involved the systematization of actions taken by the social programs of the Ministry of Development and Social Inclusion (MIDIS) and other public contributions in response to the Coastal El Niño of 2017. This included an exhaustive review of the operating guidelines of the different entities in terms of disaster risk management, as well as individual and group interviews with actors involved in the implementation of these responses. Using both sources of information and a purpose-specific diagnosis, we prepared a balance sheet of the results and conclusions and then put together recommendations for both legislative and operational aspects.

“APOYO Consultoría stands out for its top-level team, high-quality work, and its ability to meet even the tightest deadlines. Thanks to the team’s excellent technical skills, the learning curve is quick, which helps to streamline the work, especially when it involves complex topics. I think it’s very important for a consultant to not just follow a client’s instructions, but to propose other ways of tackling the same problem or evaluating the situation. The added value provided by APOYO Consultoría is that they help us look for solutions and present us with alternatives that we have oftentimes failed to identify ourselves. They have helped us with critical issues for the organization and complex negotiating processes with the government. While we have not gotten the results we were hoping for in every single case, we have always ended up in a better position than when we started. Whether great or small, there is always a positive impact.”

“We hired APOYO Consultoría because we know they do diligent, high-quality work, whether with research or any other tasks with which they are entrusted. Their reputation is a guarantee of credibility wherever you go. Not only are they a trustworthy company, but everyone knows it. The experience and skill of each of the company’s members allows them to gain a full understanding of what the client needs and go above and beyond, using creativity and pragmatism to maximize the value of their consulting services. Overall, the most important benefit APOYO Consultoría provides is the ability to make ‘tangible’ or demonstrable things that can sometimes seem relative or vague, and that makes a difference in any field”
Director of Corporate Affairs
“The reputation and diligent work of APOYO Consultoría gives us peace of mind when it comes to the quality of the deliverables and the knowledge that external agents will trust the objectivity of the results. In addition to working to understand the context in which we operate and co-designing projects with us to make them more robust, APOYO Consultoría has given us the tools we need to objectively demonstrate –in different forums and to different audiences–key aspects about our operation which people sometimes talk about without truly understanding them.”
