Beth Cobert, deputy management director at the Office of Management and Budget, detailed the agency’s reform plans on Tuesday as part of the fiscal year 2015 budget proposal, Federal News Radio reported Tuesday.

Jason Miller writes Cobert told reporters Tuesday via teleconference the management agenda includes work to refresh the government’s tax collection and social security services.

OMB also wants to also provide funding to establish a civilian property realignment board as well as employee hiring and training programs, Miller writes.

“The agenda is focused on delivering a 21st century government that is more effective, efficient and supportive of economic growth,” Cobert said, according to the report.

“As we make progress, we will continue to identify and launch new initiatives and reforms that support the agenda’s mission.”

The proposal sets aside $6 million for National Institute of Standards and Technology-run programs designed to facilitate technology sharing among agencies, according to the article.

The White House also proposed building a repository for the public to access data from National Science Foundation-sponsored research projects, the station reports.
