2012 Call for Research Report Proposals

Thursday, September 27th, 2012 - 14:38
Author(s): 
Our aim is to produce research and analysis that helps government leaders more effectively respond to their mission and management challenges. The IBM Center is named "The Business of Government" because its focus is the management and operation of government, not the policies of government. Public sector leaders and managers need the best, most practical advice available when it comes to delivering the business of government. We seek to “bridge the gap” between research and practice by helping to stimulate and accelerate the production of actionable research.
