Accountability/Reward Employees

Create a web based accountability and reward system for all employees or organizations which receive federal taxpayer funds using open source web based content management systems to reduce any overhead. For example, allow local citizens to evaluate the performance of employees motivating the lowest performers to improve by being publicly identified, and financially rewarding the top performers for their service to the... more »

Anonymous evaluation system

Create an easy anonymous web based method for providing feedback and evaluation on all projects. Every project will have a public tracking number and be web searchable. Those with any knowledge or interest in the project can post public comments and suggestions about it with responses being optional. An independent organization can be responsible for investigating any important items of interest. Evil grows in the dark... more »

Website for Publicly Thanking Specific Civil Servants

We need a website where citizens can publicly thank civil servants for taking the extra step. Citizens who had a good or outstanding experience with a civil servant (or elected official) would be able to go to the site and put in a commendation. The commendation would automatically route (as appropriate) to the individual as well as the individual's supervisor. In addition to creating incentives for government employees,... more »

Rebuilding Project Assessment by Overseas Beneficiary Neighborhoods

It has been said that the total dollars lost in rebuilding Iraq is greater than that lost in the Madoff Scandal. No-bid contracts characterized the reconstruction program, money was lost without a trace. To assure that reconstruction funds do good for their intended neighborhoods, we propose a assessment and rating system in which beneficiary neighborhoods must sign off before final payment to the contractors helping... more »

Objective Rather Then Subjective Performance Appraisals

The performance appraisal systems at many of our government agencies including HHS have been a failure for far too long. In their current structure they do not ensure that ratings are in line with actual performance and they are highly subjective rather then objective allowing for varied interpretations and abuse by managers who want to play favorites and not look at the work that has actually been achieved. Written... more »

Revise Information Collection Request requirements to encourage feedback on collaboration in the field.

The Paperwork Reduction Act requires approval by OMB of most government requests for information from people who are not in government. This can be a lengthy and cumbersome review process and tends to discourage agencies from seeking outside feedback from stakeholders and the public on the performance of public outreach and engagement efforts(be they meetings, hearings,dispute resolution efforts, consensus building,... more »

Performance Evaluations in the Gov't

As a gov't employee with the Dept of Justice, I have been required to write my own performance evaluations for the last four years. When I say required, it is more along the lines of "if you don't write them, then you will just have to accept what is given to you, and it may not be as favorable". So, I've been giving myself very impressive performance evaluations, both quarterly and yearly, for the last four years (I've... more »

performance measures

What performance measures are necessary to determine the effectiveness of open government policies? o How do businesses determine the effectiveness of their policies? Increased sales. Improved market share. BBB reports. Stockholder satisfaction evidenced by stock purchases. When we have to beg for money to fund our bad financial policies, it is pretty obvious that we are not doing it right. o GDP increases without... more »

eliminate senate seats and house seats

With the technology today we do not need so many to represent the people. Cut costs by laying off the dead weight. If they do not perform and do not show up to vote, let them go. No pension and no insurance. As for income, the senate and house earn what teachers make. And they do not get so much time off. This would eliminate the desire for lifetime politicians. they should serve 2 terms and there out, just like our president.... more »

Spend, Spend, Spend, When will it stop?

The Obama administration has spent more in the last 5 months than the previous administrations have spent in the last 30 years combined. I resent your cocktail parties with the $100 per pound beef from Japan. If you are going to spend money, make sure you are buying American products. Also, we do not care about your date nights. But we do care about how much money you are spending on your date nights because it... more »
