Danny Werfel, partner and managing director at the Boston Consulting Group, discusses what needs to be considered in the potential amalgamation of the Labor and Education departments, from agency programs to congressional oversight.


One of the most discussed pieces of the Office of Management and Budget’s reorganization proposal is the plan to combine the departments of Labor and Education into one large organization.  Danny Werfel, managing director at the Boston Consulting Group, says that considerations should be made for practical implications of the reorganization, such as how the day-to-day operations will change. “Ultimately, you have to take a citizen-centered view. Those programs are set up in those agencies, intended to have an important impact on labor policy, labor issues, education issues,” said Werfel. “How those two agencies are combined, I think most people will care about the impact it has on programs and policies. Until people start getting their hands dirty in understanding what the impact is there, I think there’ll be less concern around where the organization sits and what its name is.”
