The mission of the Partnership for Public Service is to revitalize the federal government by inspiring a new generation to serve and by transforming the way government works. This grant will enable the Partnership to do nonpartisan research and education to highlight how Congressional dysfunction affects the executive branch. It can work back from these negative ramifications to illuminate the changes in how Congress operates that would have the most positive benefit on public administration. The Partnership has a unique perspective and track record on these issues and is widely respected in Congress, so this offers a powerful way of identifying downstream (executive branch) requirements for upstream (legislative branch) reforms.

for general operating support
The Partnership for Public Service works to revitalize our federal government by transforming the way government works and inspiring a new generation to serve. 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.
