National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA) has established a center that will foster partnerships among executives from all levels of government in the United States
The Center for Intergovernmental Partnerships (CIP) will promote collaborative intergovernmental efforts to address issues facing the country, NAPA said on Tuesday. The CIP will initially help agencies manage funds from the CARES Act and other programs that support the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The center and its partners will assess the state of coordination between different levels of government and identify practices that promote transparency in national recovery efforts. The CIP will also create a new source of information to augment intergovernmental systems.
“County officials in America are delighted to join the Academy in keeping the flame of our country’s unique intergovernmental system alive for future generations,” said Matthew Chase, CEO and Executive Director of the National Association of Counties.
