ASPA and NAPA Launch Transition Project For 2016

As candidates ready for the next presidential election, the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) and the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA) have partnered to offer management recommendations and expert advice to help the next president develop a  more agile, responsive and resilient government.

On Monday, May 11, ASPA and NAPA outlined a three-part roadmap for effective governance that will include using professional administration experts as liaisons to the major political parties, highlight key management issues and propose recommendations for a management improvement agenda. The project, led by Ed DeSeve, a former official in the Clinton administration and David Chu, a former official in both Bush (41 and 43) and Reagan administrations, will identify key management issues, put together recommendations and present them at events and to the campaigns.

“Good management is good politics,” said DeSeve at the launch. Our goal is to reach out to the campaigns and bring them management ideas. Chu noted that often management is not at the top of the list for candidates or presidents, but it should be. “Management may not be the first issue on which government leaders focus when announcing how they’ll deal with a problem, but it is essential if the public’s expectations of its government are to have any chance of fulfillment,” said Chu.

The project launch garnered national media coverage, as reported in the Federal Times and Government Executive. To learn more about the initiative, click here.
