Pursuant to its statutory responsibilities authorized
in Section 2 of Public Law 380, passed
during the first session of the 86th Congress and
approved by President Eisenhower on September
24, 1959, the Commission singles out particular
problems impeding the effectiveness of the federal
system for study and recommendation.
The current intergovernmental grant system was
identified as such a problem by the Commission in
the spring of 1974. In order to evaluate the functioning
of that system, it was deemed essential to
obtain the perceptions of those who are responsible
for its day-to-day operation
officials at the
local, state, and Federal levels. To that end, four
surveys were conducted. The results of those surveys
are presented in this volume. Policy recommendations
based on the survey findings and other
research are found in other volumes in this series.

This volume was prepared by the governmental
structure and functions section of the Commission
staff. Albert J. Richter, senior analyst, was responsible
for the surveys and analyses in Chapters II, III,
and V, and edited Chapter IV. Deil S. Wright directed
the survey of state administrators described
in Chapter IV, and he and Elaine Sharp, both of the
Department of Political Science, University of
North Carolina, prepared the analysis of the results.
Evelyn M. Nolin provided secretarialclerical
support in the conduct of the surveys and
tabulation of the returns, and typed the manuscript.
The cooperation of the staff of the Urban Data
Services Center of the International City Management
Association, led by Stanley Wolfson and Barbara
Grouby, and of George A. Bell of the National
Association of State Budget Officers was invaluable
in the preparation and conduct of the local
officials' and state budget officers' surveys. The
participation of the hundreds of local, state, and
Federal officials was, of course, essential to the
success of the surveys and is greatly appreciated.
The Commission gratefully acknowledges financial
assistance from the Department of Health,
Education, and Welfare for support of the surveys
and publication of the report.
This report would not have been possible without
the cooperation and assistance of the persons
and agencies identified above. Full responsibility
for content and accuracy rests, of course, with the
Commission and its staff.
