Common themes in cross-agency priority goals
The White House has posted priority goals for the proposed FY 2019 budget. In both the cross-agency goals and the individual agency goals, there are some commonalities. These goals include language referring to reducing regulatory burdens and reducing waiting times for permits.
“If you’re going to do this goal-making policy effort, you really should ask some questions, ‘What should agencies do together?’ ‘How do those goals affect the priorities of the administration?’” said Dan Tangherlini, former administrator of the General Services Administration and CFO of Emerson Collective. “A couple of themes that the administration has really it on over and over, you see reflected in those goals.”
