Abstract As background information to the federal noise abatement program, past and present federal organizations set up to coordinate civil aviation policy are described, including those dealing with the aircraft noise problem. Commissions and agency task groups who studied civil aviation problems are also described. Descriptions include membership, authorization, outline history, objectives, activities, staff, outputs (reports, proposals, etc.), impact, and mechanisms for modifications of organizational structure or goals. The evolution of these organizations from after World War II to the present is traced, both those coordinating research and those coordinating operational policy. Typical problems that have been encountered by various organizations are discussed. Some conclusions of the study are: (1) In the early 1960's there was no institution actively coordinating federal aircraft noise abatement activities; (2) much of the impetus for better coordination has come from Congress; (3) successful coordination requires high-level agency and Administration support; (4) the host agency may have difficulty securing cooperation of other agencies.
