2022 Impact Report

Letter From the
President and Chair

Max Stier
President and CEO

Tom Bernstein
Chairman of the Board

Our federal government is facing an enormous opportunity.

To address a daunting set of domestic and international challenges, a series of historic measures—the American Rescue Plan, the bipartisan infrastructure law, the CHIPS and Science Act, and the Inflation Reduction Act—have provided federal agencies with significant funding to tackle issues that touch on nearly every aspect of American life, from economic uncertainty and climate change to infrastructure, technological development and COVID-19.

Our government must operate effectively to ensure that these once-in-a-generation investments make an impact, cultivating effective leadership, workforce and management strategies to implement programs and services that reach thousands of communities and individuals across the country. This work is essential to the health of our democracy. By solving its most critical operational challenges, our government can fulfill its promise to execute an ambitious national agenda that both reflects and seeks to meet the diverse needs of our nation.

At the Partnership for Public Service, we equip our government to meet this challenge.

Since 2001, we have worked to create a more dynamic, innovative and modern government that effectively serves the public. It has been an incredible journey filled with remarkable accomplishments—and 2022 was no exception.

This past year, we launched the Public Service Leadership Institute® as the preeminent source of programs, policies and perspectives related to leadership in government. The institute will serve as a critical hub for federal employees at all levels to learn and network, with an increased focus on career senior executives. We also supported senior executives at agencies that received major funding under recent legislation, including the departments of Health and Human Services and Transportation, the IRS, and the Environmental Protection Agency.

We launched new internship programs and reinvigorated our Call to Serve network, the only national network of colleges and universities that promotes public service to students and recent alumni. We envision this network as the single greatest contributor to helping attract next-generation talent into public service. In addition, our Best Places to Work in the Federal Government® rankings provided agencies with a roadmap to improve employee engagement and satisfaction, a main driver of government performance, and match the best of the private sector.

Finally, we worked to increase public trust in government by improving knowledge about how government serves the public interest, by telling stories about exceptional public servants and their work through the Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals®, and by providing agencies with the data and performance insights they need to succeed. Moving forward, our research will continue to be an authoritative source for assessing government effectiveness.

Together, these achievements help lay the groundwork for our government to transform the way it works and develop the management strategies it needs to effectively deliver and implement large federal investments that drive important outcomes for the public.

Today, we have a unique opportunity to advance this work. As we look to our new strategic era, we plan to build on the past, capitalize on our growth and prepare for the future. For 2023 and the years ahead, we will steadily grow and expand our work in four core areas.

Public Service Leadership
Federal leaders are equipped to achieve their agencies’ missions and contribute to the public good.
Federal Talent
Our government recruits, engages and retains the nation’s best talent.
Society’s Commitment to Government
Society trusts and engages with a well-functioning government.
The Partnership
The Partnership has the talent and organizational capacity to deliver on and sustain its nonpartisan mission.

This work will not be easy. Our government is facing turbulent times that may make progress seem unlikely, underscored by increased partisanship, low public trust and threats to our democracy.

However, our record of accomplishment makes us optimistic about the possibilities for meaningful change. As we enter our next era of work, we will position ourselves to deliver enduring and measurable impact on our government and the people it serves for decades to come.

In this Impact Report, we highlight the results of our programs and activities in 2022 and outline our plans for the coming year. Our accomplishments would not be possible without the generous support of our donors and partners, whom we thank for supporting our work.

Together, we can build a better government and a stronger democracy. Join us.

Public Service Leadership Institute

Building on our more than 10 years of expertise in developing federal leaders, we launched the Public Service Leadership Institute in June of 2022 to serve as the preeminent source of programs, policies and perspectives related to leadership in government. A key element of the new institute is the Public Service Leadership Model, which seeks to set the standard for effective federal leadership.

The institute has three main goals:

  • To amplify the importance of public service leadership.
  • To develop government leaders at all levels—from aspiring supervisors to political appointees.
  • To unify around a shared standard of federal leadership.

“The institute will serve as a ladder that public servants can climb and will drive us closer to an equitable and inclusive vision for our country and our government.”

Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland

Working with Senior Leadership

We facilitated leadership retreats with the secretaries of commerce, transportation, and health and human services. These retreats offer executive teams the opportunity to address their unique needs and develop meaningful action plans through structured collaboration and custom working sessions.

Our work with senior leaders also includes various custom engagements and the AI Federal Leadership Program, which helps members of the Senior Executive Service understand and apply AI and other emerging technologies to improve their agencies’ service delivery.

The Center for Presidential Transition®

The Partnership’s Center for Presidential Transition® is the premier nonpartisan source of information to help presidential candidates and their teams prepare for a new administration or a president’s second term. In 2022, the Center raised awareness about the broken Senate confirmation process, prepared new political appointees to lead, and developed thought leadership that shared best practices and shaped the national conversation on transitions.


New and prospective political appointees reached in 2022

Our political appointee tracker, launched jointly with The Washington Post, is the only real-time source for political appointments data and holds the Biden administration and the Senate accountable for quickly nominating and confirming key political appointees.

Championing Legislative Reform

In 2022, Congress enacted two legislative mandates that we championed to ensure smoother presidential transitions and more transparency around federal leadership vacancies:

  • That presidential candidates receive transition assistance even if there is a delay in our government’s official recognition of an apparent election winner.
  • That our government publish a new modernized, online and yearly updated Plum Book, the most comprehensive directory of federal political appointees and senior career officials.

“I cannot imagine doing a presidential transition in a modern era without the Partnership. If a transition team itself had to assemble the information that the Partnership provides to every presidential transition, it would turn an incredibly difficult job into a complete nightmare. What the Partnership does is incredibly worthwhile.”

Edward “Ted” Kaufman, Former chairman of the Biden Transition; former United States Senator

“Slow Nominations and Confirmations Pose a Threat to National Security”

Our data reveals chronic delays at nearly every step of the nomination and confirmation process—even for the national security positions that all stakeholders agree are essential to minimize threats during the first months of a new administration.

New Book: “The Peaceful Transfer of Power”

Based on our 2020 podcast series, “Transition Lab,” “The Peaceful Transfer of Power” uses interviews with senior officials from the past eight presidential transitions to illuminate the inner workings of one of our most vital democratic traditions.

Building Critical Connections

We convene roundtables and other forums for federal executives—including deputy secretaries, general counsels, public affairs officers, chief diversity officers, customer experience leads, assistant secretaries for administration and management, innovation and human resources leaders, and others—to collaborate with their peers, share ideas and solve problems.

These meetings provide us with insight into the major issues of concern to federal leaders. Recent discussion topics include implementing return-to-office plans, building productive relationships with congressional committees and managing surge staffing for emergencies.

In 2022, we also emerged as a trusted partner in the field of public interest technology, bringing together cross-sector leaders in dozens of convenings to discuss issues such as federal innovation, the tech workforce, cloud computing, accessibility in government, and more.

Learn more about our federal networks

For the Future

We will facilitate the adoption of the Public Service Leadership Model through advocacy of a single leadership standard.
We will strengthen our efforts to develop senior federal executives through custom retreats, training opportunities, and individual, group and team coaching.
We will refresh our transition resources and programs to help political and career leaders prepare for the 2024 transition cycle.

Federal Talent

We help our government recruit and retain the skilled and diverse talent it needs to effectively serve the public.

Pictured: We hosted students, interns and recent graduates to learn about federal job opportunities and careers in public service. Dr. Anthony Fauci delivered opening remarks, pictured here with Partnership Vice President of Federal Workforce Programs, Michelle Amante.

Future Leaders in Public Service

Encouraging college students to consider careers in public service and strengthening federal internship and fellowship programs are key to helping government fill critical talent gaps and solve future challenges.

To meet this need, we launched the Future Leaders in Public Service Internship Program with support from Schmidt Futures. The program placed more than 140 students from schools across the country in paid summer internships with the departments of Commerce and Transportation and serves as a powerful model for agencies. We are on track to place 250 interns in government during the summer of 2023.

Future Leaders in Public Service interns discuss their experiences.

Call to Serve

As part of our goal to encourage college students to consider careers in the federal government, we visited nearly 60 campuses—and made many virtual presentations—to promote our Call to Serve network, a community of approximately 700 colleges and universities we train to recruit the next generation of public servants.

Our Call to Serve communications campaign received honorable mention from PRNEWS’ 2023 Nonprofit Awards, which honor talented communicators who work to make the world a better place.

Overall reach: 2,318 students, 349 advisors
21 states visited: Pennsylvania, Virginia, Ohio, Florida, New Jersey, Texas, Michigan, California, New York, Arizona, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Massachusetts, Illinois, North Carolina, Georgia, Indiana, Connecticut, Oregon, Utah, Washington, DC


Program participants who said they would be likely or extremely likely to pursue a career in the federal government.

“This program provides you with a really strong foundation if a career in public service is something you’re interested in.”

Op-Ed: “The Federal Workforce is Aging: It’s Time for a New Generation”

In The Washington Post, Partnership President and CEO Max Stier and Dr. Anthony Fauci outlined how our government could bring more young people into the federal workforce.

Read the op-ed

Answering the Call to Serve

In 2022, we redesigned our GoGovernment.org website, a one-stop shop for job seekers to better understand the federal hiring process. The revamped site provides a more user-friendly and interactive experience that helps young people learn about the Partnership’s internship and fellowship programs, access career guides and find the right federal agency, better understand the federal application process, explore inspiring stories from public servants, and much more.

After enrolling in the Partnership’s Cybersecurity Talent Initiative, a first-of-its-kind public-private partnership aimed at developing a cybersecurity workforce, Sangi Ranadeeve joined the State Department as an IT cybersecurity specialist.

Building a Better Workplace

In partnership with Boston Consulting Group, we released our 2021 and 2022 Best Places to Work in the Federal Government® rankings, the most comprehensive insight into the federal employee experience and an invaluable tool for agencies to better engage their workforce.

In collaboration with The Washington Post, we also released a special top 10 edition of the 2022 Best Places to Work rankings and data, featuring the highest-ranked large, midsize and small agencies, and agency subcomponents. Our full rankings release and annual awards event took place on April 12, 2023.

Fostering Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility

Through two executive orders, the Biden administration has recognized government’s need to strengthen diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility in the federal workforce, and advance federal support for underserved communities.

To help our government deliver on these twin imperatives and regain the public’s trust, we delivered DEIA training to nearly 2,000 employees at the Department of Labor, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and several other agencies in 2022.

With support from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation, our 18-month program with the CDC helped the agency work toward becoming more diverse, equitable and inclusive, a key pillar of its new strategic plan focused on health equity.

Learn about our impact Read our op-ed on these efforts, co-authored with PolicyLink

For the Future

We will reinvigorate our Call to Serve network of colleges and universities, offering them a tiered membership model and certificate program to support efforts that promote government careers to students.
We will expand our employee engagement and DEIA work with federal agencies.
We will advocate before Congress and federal agencies for critical systems reforms to address barriers to recruiting and retaining young talent.

Society’s Commitment
to Government

We work to build a government that connects with and delivers effective services to the public in collaboration with other champions of good government. By spotlighting the achievements of public servants and helping agencies better serve our diverse nation, we aim to increase the perception of our government as trustworthy, accountable and transparent.

Toward a More Trusted Government

On Sept. 20, we hosted the 21st annual Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals® at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Luminaries from the government, business and social sectors, and notable media personalities, attended the event to recognize eight outstanding honorees chosen from more than 330 nominations and 30 finalists.

Our honorees were recognized for a range of accomplishments—from overseeing the launch of the James Webb Telescope and coordinating the resettlement of more than 72,000 Afghan refugees to designing the plan to distribute millions of COVID-19 vaccines to different states and localities.

Alicia Menendez of MSNBC emceed the event, which featured remarks from Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff, Dr. Anthony Fauci, former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Secretary of Veterans Affairs Denis McDonough and others. The ceremony received honorable mention from PRNEWS’ 2023 Nonprofit Awards.

Bloomberg TV and YouTube Live also aired an hour-long Service to America Medals® special that was emceed by Ashley Nicole Black and showcased remarks from numerous celebrities.

Since 2001, the Service to America Medals, or the Sammies, have honored more than 700 public servants.

We also recognized Darren Walker (left), president of the Ford Foundation, as our 2022 Spirit of Service award winner. The award recognizes individuals outside of government who make significant contributions to public service.

Building our organization’s future

In the coming years, we will continue to improve our management and workforce to realize our ambitious goals and vision. Guided by our 2023-2026 strategic plan, we will prioritize several areas that will help us expand and grow our work, including:

Supporting the growth, development and long-term engagement of our employees.
Meeting our evolving talent needs.
Maintaining an inclusive workplace.
Growing and diversifying our revenue streams.

Throughout, we will be unwavering in our commitment to supporting our government and the public servants who work there.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The Partnership for Public Service is committed to building a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace culture.

To pursue meaningful change for both the federal government and the millions of public servants who comprise it, we strive to uphold the nonpartisan values of fairness and equity—values rooted in our representative democracy—and engage in social discourse about how we can achieve equity in both our society and in our federal institutions.

Learn more about our commitment to DEI

Solving our government’s management, operational, performance and talent challenges requires the involvement of people within and outside the federal government and across many sectors.
