American Society for Public Administration

The American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) is a membership association in the United States sponsoring conferences and providing professional services primarily to those who study the implementation of government policy, public administration, and, to a lesser degree, programs of civil society. Its annual conference is an important meeting for those interested in bureaucracy and other public administration topics such as budgeting and budget theory, government strategic planning, personnel management, and related topics.

The ASPA was founded in 1939, following growing concerns about the management of federal government and the report of the Brownlow Committee.
