Bringing together agencies and experts to make government work better

About ACUS

The Administrative Conference of the United States (ACUS) is an independent federal agency within the executive branch whose statutory mission is to identify ways to improve the procedures by which federal agencies protect the public interest and determine the rights, privileges, and obligations of private persons. 

ACUS has issued hundreds of recommendations since 1968 to improve the efficiency, adequacy, and fairness of rulemaking, adjudication, and other administrative processes. Many have resulted in reforms by federal agencies, the President, Congress, and the Judicial Conference of the United States.
