OMB, GSA Formulate Plan to Drive Efficiency Across Federal Agencies

budget analysis reviewThe Office of Management and Budget and General Services Administration have collaborated to develop measures to collect agency performance data and drive efficiency in spending, resource deployment and service delivery, Federal News Radio reported Wednesday.

Ariel Levin-Waldman writes the OMB-GSA plan calls for federal agencies to establish performance benchmarks by the end of the month, which will be used to determine best practices and efficiency indicators.

OMB and GSA target indicators such as cost savings, redundancy of federal property and adoption of shared services, Levin-Waldman reports.

The agencies want the findings to guide agency leadership teams and working groups to draw an action and implementation plan and, eventually, a standard plan and metrics across agencies.

The report said this benchmarks policy is part of the administration’s efforts to eliminate waste, fraud and abuse of government resources, including improper real property payments.
