Waste and Inefficiency in Government: What Do You Think?

Government is often criticized for being inefficient and wasteful, but rarely are the people on the inside asked their opinions about the issue.

The Government Business Council, the research arm of Government Executive, is doing exactly that, by deploying a survey to discover what federal leaders believe is working and what isn’t, and to identify the  tactics that have been employed to overcome shortcomings. Since a byproduct of rooting out inefficiency is cutting costs, the study also aims to identify key steps in the cost reduction process that are keeping federal leaders from making their agencies more efficient. The idea is to identify best practices that can be used by agencies to improve operations.

That's where you come in. You can help by taking the brief survey (it'll only take six to eight minutes of your time) and grading government’s efficiency.
