Chairman Verkuil

ACUS is among the smallest agencies of our federal government, but it has a very important mission: to promote improvements in the efficiency, adequacy, and fairness of the procedures by which federal agencies conduct regulatory programs, administer grants and benefits, and perform related governmental functions.  We do this through a variety of activities that include scholarly research projects, development of recommendations directed primarily to agencies and Congress, and publications and seminars on best procedural practices.

50th

The Administrative Conference turns 50 this year.  The Conference officially came into being on August 30, 1964, when President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Administrative Conference Act (Public Law 88-499) and established the agency. Now, 50 years later, we are still dedicated to improving the administrative process through consensus-driven applied research.
