Other Reforms

The goals in the President's Management Agenda are being undertaken in advance of, not instead of, other needed management improvements. As part of OMB's pursuit of the Agenda, Office of Management and Budget Director Mitch Daniels has called attention to several other matters requiring the Administration's attention:
  • Reduced Vehicle Fleets:
    One Cabinet Department reports more vehicles than employees, and five agencies appear to have at least one vehicle for every three FTEs. On April 10, 2002, Mitch Daniels wrote department and agency heads asking for information and ideas to tighten control of the federal vehicle fleet.

  • Tighter Controls and Action on Abuse of Government Charge Cards:
    Recent reports by the General Accounting Office and Inspectors General have raised serious concerns regarding the adequacy of controls to monitor the use of the more than 2.5 million government credit cards now in circulation. On April 18, 2002, Mitch Daniels asked departments and agencies to tighten control of their purchase and travel card programs.

  • Saving Taxpayer Dollars on Printing Costs:
    Executive Branch departments and agencies should not be required to select the Government Printing Office when more efficient and cost-effective options are available through the private sector or other avenues. On May 3, 2002, Mitch Daniels wrote departments and agencies with new guidelines for their printing and duplicating needs.
