Need to Enforce Current Law Requiring Federal Agencies to Distribute Material Via GPO

Many Federal entities do not follow Title 44's requirements to distribute their publications via the Federal Depository Library system. This has been an on-going problem transcending which party is in the White House. It is time for the current administration to follow the law and require all Executive Agencies to follow. Other entities, such as the Courts, which are not part of the Executive Department should follow ...more »

Improve interagency emergency planning

Commonly, at federal emergency exercises, one finds that some agency representatives have mistaken perceptions of the emergency roles and procedures of other agencies. The national response plan is helpful in that regard, but provides inadequate detail. Potential disconnects should be addressed in the planning process, not during an emergency. There are two ways to address the problem: 1) Allow each federal agency ...more »

We need another Hoover Commission

We need to take a look at how our federal government can be streamlined and made more cost-effective. An independent bipartisan commission should be formed, analogous to the Hoover Commission.

These technical assistance consultants are often engaged to help communities develop and implement public-private collaboration frameworks and public participation strategies as well as other, more technical ...more »

Rewrite Congress's Job Description

Economists, bankers, and regulators—all failed to protect us from the financial crisis we’re now facing. And they will again—because their job description does not require them to regularly review and revise the entire framework of financial regulation. But Congress might well succeed where these others have so often failed if it rewrites its own job description to include this task. Recurrent financial crises point ...more »

No To Obama's Healthcare Reform

The so called public option insurance will raise cost of private insurance leading to people choosing Government care thinking it will cost less. Yet it has to be payed for and in Countries with Nationalize Healthcare Systems middle class income taxes range from 50% to 60% and their healthcare systems are still broke causing rationed care. I don't think American's want rationed care. Medicare waste $1 to every $3 dollars ...more »

Inreach (within-agency collaboration and shared learning)

Inreach, interagency dialog, and outreach have many of the same characteristics. It makes sense to (a) treat these as concentric circles, starting with inreach and working out to the general public or (b) treat these as one. All the principles, ethics, aspirations and implementation tools discussed in this site should be designed for application within the agency as well in agency-agency and agency-public dialogs. ...more »
