Administrative Conference of the United States Law and Legal Definition

The Administrative Conference of the United States (ACUS) is a former independent federal agency that provided a forum where agency heads, private attorneys, university professors, and others studied ways to improve the procedures that agencies use in administering federal programs. ACUS was created in 1968 to study U.S. administrative processes with an eye to recommend improvements to Congress and agencies. ACUS issued almost 200 recommendations from 1968 to 1995, most of which was partially implemented. ACUS was terminated in 1995.
