Academy's Center for Intergovernmental Partnerships (CIP)
The Academy's Center for Intergovernmental Partnerships (CIP) is responsible for analysis, dialogue, and problem-solving, facilitating collaboration between the federal, state, tribal, territorial, and local levels of government. The Center also acts as a resource for the Executive Branch and Congress by providing pointed program assessment, design, and implementation, strengthening collaboration and cooperation among leaders at all levels of government.
The Center will be the nation's hub for best management practices (BMPs) and solutions to our society's biggest intergovernmental challenges. It will utilize Academy staff, Academy Fellows, and other partners to develop structures and processes for implementing effective policies for resilient, sustainable future governance.
Listen to the Center's Director, Nancy Augustine, discuss the state of intergovernmental cooperation during her interview with Tom Temin of Federal News Network.
