Christine Harada, associate administrator of governmentwide policy at the General Services Administration, believes the agency could maximize efficiency by implementing strategies to boost transparency and information management, FCW reported Thursday.
Colby Hochmuth writes that Harada aims to expand her office’s analytical practices in order to improve data collection and sharing with other federal agencies.
“One of the main reasons I’m really passionate about building up the team is that I want real performance metrics behind our policy decisions,” Harada said, according to FCW.
“I want to know how our policy affects other government agencies, and more importantly, are those policies and regulations having a desired effect on behavior.”
She also believes that clarity on decision-making authority and free flow of information are keys to organizational effectiveness across the government.
“It’s understanding how these large and complex organizations manage and manage well,” Harada told FCW.
“Whether that’s space or working in consulting, we all have some complex issues to solve, and
I look forward to solving problems from the inside,” she added, according to FCW.
