INSTRUCTIONS :The National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA) assists government leaders


The National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA) assists government leaders solve critical challenges in public administration. The congressionally chartered non-partisan, non-profit Academy includes over 1,000 Fellows including former cabinet officers, Members of Congress, governors, mayors, state legislators, prominent scholars, and public administrators.  

Recently, The National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA) completed a study of the future of intergovernmental management and relations in the U.S.  

Discuss the following concerns The Academy developed during its study:

· What are the critical intergovernmental challenges that need to be addressed? 

· What are the current barriers to effective consultation and collaboration at both the enterprise and program levels within and across levels of government? 

· What procedural or institutional changes might best reduce those barriers? 

· How might needed institutional capacity be managed and funded?
