WASHINGTON – On Thursday, October 13, the nonprofit, nonpartisan Partnership for Public Service and former top federal executives will share ways the new administration can strengthen and reshape the Office of Management and Budget. OMB is a tiny agency, but it has enormous power, including responsibility for the federal budget as well as important government-wide policy, regulatory and management obligations.
“From combatting the Zika virus to protecting the homeland, there are many complex challenges facing the next president that will require our complicated, fragmented government to operate more cohesively,” said Max Stier, president and CEO of the Partnership for Public Service. “A well-functioning OMB will be key to providing this necessary coordination that can help turn the new administration’s priorities into reality.”
“The next Administration should use OMB to focus on implementing its policies to better meet the needs of the American people,” Stier added.
During the discussion, the Partnership will release its latest report, “From Decisions to Results: Building a More Effective Government through a Transformed Office of Management and Budget.”
