FG 6-21 pertains to the Office of Intergovernmental Relations, established by Executive Order 11455 on February 14, 1969. The Executive Order directed that the Vice President “shall act as the President's liaison with executive and legislative officials of State and local governments; encourage and assist in facilitating maximum cooperation between and among the various Federal agencies and such other governments; help to make the Federal executive branch, especially those sectors thereof having a direct impact on intergovernmental relations, more sensitive, receptive and responsive to the views of State and local officials; serve as the focal point of efforts by Federal departments, agencies, and interagency councils and committees to resolve specific difficulties that arise in their relationships with such officials; work closely with and encourage the work of the Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations; and inform the Council for Urban Affairs on general intergovernmental issues of an informational, administrative, or program nature so that the Council may more effectively advise and assist the President with respect to urban affairs.”

The Office was abolished in January 1973 and the functions transferred to the Domestic Council.

Among the principal correspondents in this subject category are the President, C. D. Ward, J. Marsh Thomson, Ed Harper, and John Ehrlichman.
