Paul Winfree, director of the Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies at the Heritage Foundation, discusses the recommendations from a report issued last year, which mirror the OMB government reorganization proposal.


The Office of Management and Budget’s new reform plan contains some elements found in a report released last year by the Heritage Foundation. “Blueprint for Reorganization: An Analysis of Federal Departments And Agencies,” recommends reducing overlap and increasing communication within agencies.   “If you look at how programs are structured in the government, you have, for instance, 47 job training programs. You have the same offices in different departments doing the same things,” said Paul Winfree, director of the Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies at the Heritage Foundation. “One of the things that we discovered very early on last year was that a lot of these folks are not talking to each other. They are not learning best practices from one another. You have the same people at the U.S. Department of Agriculture doing the same kind of job as at the interior department and very little communication happening across agencies outside of formal policy development.”
