Abstract

The purpose of this study is to focus on the problem of communication within the Office of Grant, Planning, Management and Support in the Depart ment of Community and Human Development - City of Atlanta. To have an adequate flow of communication in any organization, clearly defined goals and objectives must be understood by the members of that organization. This is a participant-observer study which is based upon a six month internship within the Office of Grant, Planning, Management and Support. Much of the information used in this study was obtained through informal communication with line and staff persons in the Office of Grant, Planning, Management and Support. Recommendations are given on how an adequate flow of communication could enhance and improve the operations within the Office of Grant, Planning, Management and Support as well as raise the morale of the employees in that office.
