Research Projects

One of the chief activities of the Administrative Conference is making formal recommendations. A critical component of the process of making formal recommendations is research. The Conference conducts an extensive research program under the direction of the Chair and the Council, and with the assistance of the Research Director and other Conference Staff. The results of the research conducted are embodied in Conference recommendations. Like its recommendations, the Conference’s research covers both general administrative law topics that cut across many federal agencies and specific ways in which particular agencies can improve particular procedures.
