Government Executive Editor in Chief Tom Shoop, along with other editors and staff correspondents, look at the federal bureaucracy from the outside in.

Meeting Your Goals in a Time of Austerity


In the May/June issue of Government Executive, Kellie Lunney explores how the tight budgets that are in place across government actually are driving innovation at certain agencies. Sequestration, personnel reductions and pay freezes have led them to seek creative solutions to meeting long-term goals. How are they doing it?

That's what we're going to explore at a Government Executive Town Hall event next Tuesday, June 11, at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington. Dustin Brown, the Office of Management and Budget's deputy associate director for performance and personnel management, will take questions from an audience of federal managers and executives on such subjects as:

  • Aligning budget goals and performance metrics
  • Leveraging technology and other tools to build and motivate a more efficient workforce
  • Tracking program performance against larger agency goals
