Donald C. Stone Practitioner Award

The ASPA Section on Intergovernmental Administration & Management (SIAM) is soliciting nominations for the section’s annual Donald C. Stone Practitioner Award.

The principle criteria for the Practitioner award include:

  • Significant contributions to the practice of intergovernmental relations over a substantial period of time.
  • Contributions that have made an impact on the practice of intergovernmental management as a whole rather than only on a specific organization, institution, or function.

He was the founder of the American Public Works Association (APWA), served as the first Director of the Public Administration Service, and was a principal architect of the Executive Office of the President (EOP) in 1939 based on the 1937 recommendations of the Brownlow Commission. He was the first Director of the Division of Administrative Management of the Bureau of the Budget within the EOP, worked as Director of Administration of the Marshall Plan in 1948, helped found the National Academy of Public Administration in 1967, and served as Dean of the School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh.
