REINVENTING GOVERNMENT

Organizing the Conference (Sidebar to "Reinvention Revolution")

By James Thompson

In a letter and a personal appearance on March 25, Vice President Gore saluted organizers of The Reinvention Revolution: Reports from the Federal Front Lines, the first large-scale conference devoted to exploring the experience of some 225 "reinvention laboratories" created under the aegis of the National Performance Review. He thanked Government Executive, the Syracuse University Maxwell School Center for Advanced Public Management, the Council for Excellence in Government and the staff of the NPR for designing a program that could help define the future direction of the reinvention movement.

Members of this unusual public-private partnership, in turn, expressed their thanks to the National Institutes of Health for making available its state-of-the-art Natcher Conference Center and to four companies whose sponsorship of the event contributed to its success: Computer Sciences Corp., KMPG Peat Marwick, Sybase Inc. and Texas Instruments Inc.
