In 1995, the Indiana General Assembly designated the Center as the staff agency for the Indiana Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations (IACIR). The IACIR was formed to create effective communication, cooperation, and partnerships between the federal, state, and local units of government and to improve delivery of services to the citizens of Indiana through a better understanding of the process of government and the intended and unintended outcomes of policy decisions; improved communication between all levels of government and citizens; promotion of long-term planning between all levels of government; and applied research of policy areas to better understand the impacts and mandates of policy changes.

In addition to the annual survey of government officials about the issues facing their jurisdictions, some of the Center's research projects for the IACIR have included:
assessing the digital readiness of local government,
organizing forums around the state on property tax reassessment administration, and
surveying other ACIRs.
