The Partnership for Public Service works to revitalize our federal government by transforming the way government works and inspiring a new generation to serve. This renewal grant for unrestricted support will help PPS focus on equipping career and political leaders in federal agencies to improve government from the inside by increasing the engagement and commitment of public servants; modernizing government management systems and using data to prioritize and address the most pressing federal management issues. It will also educate and engage Congress in its stewardship and oversight of our government and encourage the executive and legislative branches to work more collaboratively toward constructive problem-solving across the federal enterprise.

The organization equips career and political leaders to improve government functioning and effectiveness, encourage leaders to improve the health and performance of executive and legislative branch entities, promote greater use of data to drive better decision making, build critical connections and foster collaboration within government and across sectors, and mobilize outside actors, such as business, academia, and the social sector, to encourage investments in government’s health, integrity, capacity, and performance.
for strengthening the Department of Education’s career civil service leadership capacity
The Partnership for Public Service produces an annual Best Places to Work in the Federal Government report, ranking employee satisfaction and commitment. In 2010, the Department of Education ranked thirty out of thirty-two. The Partnership proposes to work with the Department to improve its management environment and better prepare the next generation of executives for leadership. Using consultants and in-house coaching staff, the Partnership will assess the Department’s current landscape, identify appropriate interventions, create a "change management" strategy, and implement these programs effectively.
