Washington State Institute for Public Policy

Who We Are

The Washington legislature created the Washington State Institute for Public Policy in 1983. WSIPP is governed by a Board of Directors that represents the legislature, governor, and public universities. The Board guides the development of all WSIPP activities.

What We Do

WSIPP’s mission is to carry out practical, non-partisan research at the direction of the legislature or the Board of Directors. WSIPP works closely with legislators, legislative and state agency staff, and experts in the field to ensure that studies answer relevant policy questions. Fiscal and administrative services for WSIPP are provided by The Evergreen State College.
