Acknowledgements

Many of the tools included in intergov were developed by AGA’s Intergovernmental Partnership (partnership), which includes experienced and knowledgeable professionals from all level of government. AGA has sponsored the partnership since 2007 as a practical good-government initiative that provides a neutral setting for sharing ideas and best practices. Members of the partnership developed these tools to address areas that our members found challenging. It is AGA’s hope that this toolbox becomes the go-to resource for a broad cross-section of government professionals.
