Description

1st edition. The Administrative Conference of the United States (ACUS) Sourcebook of United States Executive Agencies examines the agencies and other organizational entities of the federal executive establishment, including independent agencies. It describes these United States Executive Branch agencies, their diverse characteristics, their place in the executive, and how their features influence political control and performance. It describes the evolution of the federal executive and notes emerging trends.

The motivation for this report was the belief that a comprehensive examination of the executive establishment will aid in efforts to pinpoint problems and clarify the consequences of different design choices for agency performance.

No other up-to-date resource of its kind exists.

Prepared under contract for the ACUS by Vanderbilt University's Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions (CSDI). Authors: CSDI Co-Director David E. Lewis and CSDI Ph.D. Candidate, Jennifer L. Selin.
