#ReformAndReorgPlan Updates: ⁦@POTUS⁩ ‘s 2020 Proposed Budget Highlights What’s Being Done To Transform the Fedl Govt (Largely Under the Radar) & What’s (Hopefully) To Come/1…
2/ It looks like the #ReformAndReorgPlan for sending OPM’s operating divisions to GSA & DoD—while leaving the policy functions to become an office under the WH—are under way. The OPM is like the exec branch’s HR dept.
3/The WH has nominated a new Director/OPM btw.…
4/And OPM recently got a new Chief Information Officer (Clare Martorana) & new Deputy CIO (David Nesting), both/whom came from the US Digital Service, not from w/in OPM. Looks like a bit/hpusecleanng, to me. #DrainTheSwamp…
5/Perhaps related to these moves @ OPM, proposed #2020Budget also makes a variety/proposals to promote the exec branch’s transition to electronic records, including $22M to modernize National Archives & Records Admin, w/goal/ending NARA’s acceptance/paper records by 12/31/22.
6/Perhaps the proposed modernization/the National Archives might make getting Obama administration records easier.🤔
7/Next, the proposed #2020Budget ambitiously proposes solving the fedl cyber security workforce shortage. “OMB is working w/the DHS & all fedl agencies to establish a unified cyber workforce capability across the civilian enterprise.”
8/I suspect this reference to DHS’s involvement in securing the fedl cyber-security workforce not only has to do w/it’s responsibility for cyber security generally, but also w/vetting all govt IT personnel to avoid future Awans.
9/The proposed #2020Budget also includes the “Govt Effectiveness Advanced Research (GEAR) Center. OMB is working w/business, academic, & other partners to co-establish capacity to improve operational &management challenges across the fedl enterprise through applied research.”
10/Those who followed my threads last year on @POTUS ‘s #ReformAndReorgPlan will recall my coverage of the proposed govt/nonprofit/for profit collaboration called GEAR. If you missed it, I suggest a search/that hashtag or see my coverage @ threadreaderapp for further description.
11/ #2020Budget supports “strengthening fedl evaluation, consistent w/recently enacted Fdns for Evid-Based Policymaking Act.”Trump admin tasks agencies w/designating eval officers & establishing multi-yr learning agendas to strategically plan...&carry out priority studies....”
12/Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act, btw, not only reqs exec branch depts/agencies have legit reasons for actions, but must have designated people who can explain decision-making process +open data provisions for FOIA & other verification.…
13/Finally, the #2020Budget includes reorganizing the fedl economic statistical agencies by relocating the Bureau of Labor Statistics w/in the Commerce Depart, alongside the Bureau/the Census & the Bureau/Econ Analysis, which will improve the delivery/economic statistics.
14/ @POTUS has quietly & largely w/o credit, been chipping away at ambitious proposals in last year’s #ReformAndReorgPlan ./tbc #DrainTheSwamp @Cara_TXZEAL @UrUnpaidPundit @NHMommy1 @SonofMan__2 @mizdonna @HankMullaney @Madrogran @ljcljf @Elaines2cents @LJT_is_me @unseen1_unseen
