The Analytical Studies Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) was founded in July 1969 with funds from the Ford Foundation; it reported to the vice president for organization systems at MIT. The Analytical Studies group provided staff support to Institute offices for studies on administrative policy and organization to improve internal processes, and to assist in the evaluation of alternative uses of MIT resources. The Analytical Studies Group was renamed the Analytical Studies and Planning Group in 1971.
