The White House has begun work on a new executive order that seeks to implement a reorganization in the federal government, Federal News Radio reported Wednesday.
Jason Miller writes a draft version of the executive order would require federal agencies to identify duplicative programs, back-office operations or services at other bureaus or agencies and assess whether those functions could be merged.
The draft document would direct the Office of Management of Budget to submit to President Donald Trump a governmentwide plan that would recommend ways on how to eliminate or consolidate agencies and functions as well as suggest regulatory changes to facilitate the government reorganization.
The draft document also requires OMB to seek public feedback on plans related to the reorganization effort, Miller reports.
The draft order could be released this week once the Senate confirms Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-South Carolina) as OMB director, according to the report.
