Report: Bill Would Establish ‘Government Transformation’ Board

Capitol_BuildingU.S. lawmakers have introduced a bill that would create an independent commission to review organizational practices and management strategies of government agencies, GovExec reported Monday.

Charles Clark writes the Government Transformation Act seeks to reduce wasteful spending and increase efficiency through agency program assessments by an independent seven-member board.

The group will comprise private individuals who will also be tasked to recommend legislative strategies for Congress to address management issues in the government, Clark reports.

Steve Goodrich, CEO of the Center for Organizational Excellence and vice chair of the Government Transformation Initiative, told Govexec that the bill calls for the board to use a “rigorous standardized assessment process,” monitor agency savings and build a repository for agencies to share best practices.
