The Mercatus Center releases a study of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), “Learning from the Leaders: Results-Based Management at FEMA,” today at 9:30 a.m. at the National Press Club. The study, conducted by Maurice McTigue, director of the Mercatus Center’s Public Sector Leadership Program, and Jerry Ellig, senior research fellow in the Mercatus Center, showcases how a federal agency can make widespread changes in its management practices to become a world-class government organization, and highlights specific positive results FEMA has achieved.

Watch the press conference live on the Mercatus Center website. The official FEMA case study also is available on the website. For a paper version of the study, call Kirstin Lindsey at x34918.

The Mercatus Center is a nonpartisan education, research, and outreach program that works with scholars, policy experts, and government officials to bridge academic theory and real-world practice.
