We all deserve a government that is responsive to the needs of our fellow citizens. While others may debate whether government should be bigger or smaller, we focus on making it better.
Since our founding in 2001, we have worked to make government more effective and efficient. Our nonpartisan stance allows us to collaborate with many different stakeholders who share our vision for a better government. We serve as a bridge between administrations, across the political aisle and from government to the private sector, bringing together diverse perspectives to develop forward-thinking solutions and put them into action.
But improving government requires more than just ideas—we need a talented corps of knowledgeable, action-oriented problem-solvers capable of driving results and innovation. That’s why we work with leaders throughout government to help them transform the government we have into the government we need.
We’re proud of the work we’ve done. But we understand that there’s much more work still to do.
For the past 16 years, we have proposed solutions to some of the most challenging questions for our federal institutions. This year’s annual report highlights our current strategies to achieve a more effective government and our accomplishments around each of them over the past year.
Our dedicated staff members and advisors are passionate about public service and the work we do to build a more effective government.Learn More
