Centre for Good Governance:

The Centre for Good Governance (CGG) was established and registered as a society on 31 March 2005 in the Institute with a view to coordinate and support the designing and implementation of the State Government's Governance Reforms Programme. For this, it undertakes action research, provides professional advice, and conducts change management programmes for government departments and other concerned agencies. This way, it also caters to the needs of policy makers, civil servants, and representatives from industries, academics, research institutes and non-governmental organisations for implementing the reform initiatives in the state. The CGG is a resource and capacity building centre for the state government, its various departments and officials and also for local self-government and the civil society. The goal of the CGG is to bring excellence in the governance system of the state and to strengthen institutions of civil society for making it sustainable. The focus is on creation of a strong knowledge-base by conducting action research studies on government and other organizations, improving outcomes and developing tools and techniques for performance audit of organizations and persons; and capacity building programmes for the stakeholders.
