OMB Looks to Increase Accountability from Agencies Click to read article.
OMB expressed a desire this week to hold federal agencies accountable if they do not meet specified criteria related to performance measures, cyber-security, and other issues. The agency is determined to put more ‘bark in its bite.’
"This is something we need to do," [OMB deputy director for management Clay] Johnson said. "Agencies need to have a clear definition of where they want to be and when they should get there."
He added that he met last week with Karen Evans, OMB’s administrator for e-government and IT, to figure out how to increase agency accountability.
The main method by which OMB holds agencies’ feet to the fire is by controlling the release of project funding."
