The Center for Effective Government (formerly known as the "OMB Watch") was formed in 1983 and is based in Washington D.C. According to their website, the organization aims to "Build an open, accountable government that invests in the common good, protects people and the environment, and advances the national priorities defined by an active, informed citizenry."[1] To pursue these goals, The Center for Effective Government outlines a two-pronged approach:

1) "Enhance public understanding and appreciation of what government does and how it operates in all of our communications."

2) "Protect core governing processes from undue influence by special interests, through analysis, advocacy, and strategic"partnerships inside and outside of Washington."
