The Office of Management and Budget has requested that agencies propose 10 percent budget reductions for minor programs in 2015 as the government seeks to align funds with effective programs, Federal News Radio reported Thursday.

Jason Miller writes government agencies will need to eliminate duplicated programs based on the Government Accountability Office’s report and consolidate fragmented programs in their 2015 budget request.

OMB director Sylvia Burwell told agencies that this budget plan is intended to help President Barack Obama implement budgetary measures that comply with the Budget Control Act and prioritize government programs, according to the article.

Burwell asked the agencies to collaborate with the OMB over the next several months to review the 2014 budget proposal before formulating the 2015 budget request with savings plan.

Miller writes the OMB advised agencies to exclude programs covered by existing sequestration, as well as reclassified spending.

Agencies also need to recommend new strategic and performance goals through 2015, according to Burwell.

These goals cover the management, customer service, mission support, technology and human resources, the Federal News Radio reported.

  1. How does Pres Obama justify his trip costing the Taxpayers Hundreds of Millions of Dollars while the PEOPLE Protecting the USA are losing their Jobs? Sequestration is for ALL!! The President IS NOT KING, and does NOT get to TOUR the World on OUR TAB> HIS DAUGHTERS will grow up — and then they WILL SEE ALL of the priviledges TAKEN by a PRESIDENT who considered himself BETTER than rhe REST of ALL of the United State Citizens, whether they are BLACK or WHITE:

  2. I believe that the rule that is imposed upon the Public, ALSO applies to the ONE who IM POSED it, THE PRESIDENT of THE UNITED STATES of AMERICA: IF the Sequestration has caused thousands of people mto LOOSE their JOBS, then it ALSO should APPLY to OUR ILLUSTRIOUS PRESIDENT! NO OUTRAGES VACATIONS WITH HIS FAMILY COSTING HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. HE IS NOT A KING, AND WE ARE NOT HIS SUBJECTS. HOW TWO-FACED CAN HE BE? AND NOT ONE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY SMART ENOUGH TO CATCH THIS PROBLEM. I FEAR FOR MY LIFE WHEN THE PRESIDENT SHAKES HIS FIST IN THE FACE OF GOD. GOD DID NOT KILL ANY CITY FOR ADULTRY, BUT HE DESTROYRD FIVE CITIES FOR HOMOSEXUALITY (DEFINITION OF SODOM AND GOMORAH).
