The Institute for Government Research is an association of citizens for cooperating with public officials in the scientific study of administrative methods with a view to promoting efficiency in government and advancing the science of administration. It aims to bring into existence such information and materials as will aid in the formation of public opinion, and will assist officials, particularly those of the national government, in their efforts to put the public administration upon a more efficient basis. To this end, it seeks by the thoroughgoing study and examination of the best administrative practice, public and private, American and foreign, to formulate those principles which lie at the basis of all sound administration, and to determine their proper adaptation to the specific needs of our public administration. The accomplishment of specific reforms the Institute recognizes to be the task of those who are charged with the responsibility of legislation and administration; but it seeks to assist, by scientific study and research, in laying a solid foundation of information and experience upon which such reforms may be successfully built. While some of the Institute's studies find application only in the form of practical cooperation with the administrative officers directly concerned many are of interest to other administrators and of general educational value. The results of such studies, the Institute purposes to publish in such form as will insure for them the widest possible utilization.
