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.

To celebrate the Administrative Conference’s 50th Anniversary, The George Washington Law Review has published a special edition of the Law Review’s annual administrative law issue. The commemorative double-issue, 83:4/5, Vol. 83, features submissions from scholars and practitioners in the field of administrative law—each highlighting ACUS’s role in and varied contributions to our system of government.

Sourcebook of United States Executive Agencies

This ACUS sourcebook examines the agencies and other organizational entities of the federal executive establishment, including independent agencies.  No other up-to-date resource of its kind exists.
