Florida Institute of Government
The John Scott Dailey Florida Institute of Government (FIOG) was created by the Florida Legislature in 1980 and subsequently designated as a Type I Institute by the Florida Board of Regents. The institute fulfills its statewide mission through five (5) affiliate program offices located at the Florida State University, the University of Central Florida, the University of Florida, the University of South Florida, and Florida Atlantic University.

The Institute’s original mission is in place today: to increase the effectiveness and quality of government in Florida through applied research, training, technical assistance programs and public service. A parallel goal was to provide high quality services to local governments at a reasonable cost, not always easy given budget constraints and fluctuations in the state’s economy.

We partner practitioners and University professionals from a variety of disciplines, with elected officials and organizational leaders, to identify, evaluate, and implement solutions and services.

Local government agencies are not required to go out for bid when utilizing the Florida Institute of Government at UCF.
