Dan Tangherlini, former GSA administrator and chief financial officer at Emerson Collective, discusses the White House’s new policy development center, and how it will bring outside voices to the discussion.


The Office of Management and Budget’s Government Effectiveness Advanced Research Center could be stood up in 2019, if all goes according to plan. On a conference call, OMB Deputy Director for Management Margaret Weichert said that the resources are moving into place for a launch next year, and that the center will learn from local governments, business and academia. Dan Tangherlini, former GSA administrator and chief financial officer at Emerson Collective, says that the center could change the way that the government is managed, and allow other organizations to join the conversation.   “I think the GEAR center, if implemented fully and completely, would serve as an insertion point. It would serve as a place where great ideas could be explored, vetted, implemented or at least experimented with,” Tangeherlini told Government Matters. “I think the idea is to build off of things like the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, places like that where there’s a little bit of risk tolerance and a lot of executive support for trying new things.”   Tangherlini said that OMB needs to be careful about “building an implementation organization.” “For it to be successful, it has to think of itself as a broker and not as an implementer. I think that’s what the agencies are for and frankly the great ideas exist in the private sector, the institution sector and in the nonprofit sector,” Tangherlini said.
