President Obama signed an executive order Wednesday to cut waste and promote efficient spending.
The order calls on federal agencies to reduce spending on IT devices, travel, vehicles and printing, among other areas.
According to rttnews.com, the campaign consists of executive actions designed to boost up the economy and stimulate job growth.
“In the meantime, we don’t need to wait for Congress in order to do something about wasteful spending that’s out there,” he said.
The president said the areas covered in the order will be reduced by 20 percent and agencies will be held accountable for meeting the reduction goal.
