Overlapping and Duplicative Federal Programs: How GAO's Work Can Help Guide Reform Efforts

Tuesday, September 26, 2017 • 6:00-7:30pm

A significant priority of the Trump Administration is to reform and reorganize the federal government. Over the next few weeks, the Office of Management and Budget will be reviewing agency proposals and deciding on the actions it will to take to develop and push forward a major reform agenda.

For the past ten years, the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) has been reporting on overlapping and duplicative federal programs with the intent of helping Congress and the Executive Branch identify opportunities to streamline and make sense of the myriad programs the federal government operates. On September 26, Chris Mihm, the Managing Director of Strategic Issues and the leader of GAO’s work in this area, will speak on what GAO sees as the reform opportunities and challenges facing the Administration. Please join us in a lively discussion about what GAO has learned from its work and how that learning can guide agencies going forward.
