OMB: New Agenda to Save Government Billions
Clay Johnson, the Deputy Director for management at OMB, says that the government will be able to save billions of dollars by holding agencies accountable for failing programs, overhauling the government payment method to employees, and organizing its operations. Johnson also announced that OMB plans to issue legislative proposals, as well as a new website tracking the performance of the government’s 1,200 programs.
“‘I’m not sure we want to run the federal government like a business. We want to run it with a focus on results,’ Johnson said during a luncheon hosted by the IBM Center for the Business of Government.”
“OMB intends to liquidate 5 percent of the government’s unused or rundown properties in four years, which would generate $15 billion, he said”
