The Trump Administration has been getting some criticizm from liberals lately on “draining the swamp,” but after only two months in office, President Donald Trump’s plan has been released to the public with the help of the of Office of Management and Budget (OMB).
This is going to be the first time ever the federal government was rebuilt. As of an executive orderreleased on Wednesday, there is going to “immediate actions” that are going to be put into place that will cause a “comprehensive” reorganization of the executive branch.
There will be cost savings, budgeting and workforce reductions that are all aimed at one goal: maximizing employee performance. Overall, there are going to be long term reductions in the governmental workforce, so, only those who actually do something on that former liberal gravy train will get to keep their jobs.
The memorandum outlines “the steps that OMB will take to formulate a comprehensive Government-wide Reform Plan for publication in the President’s FY 2019 Budget … this plan will rely on three primary sources of input: Agency Reform Plans, OMB-coordinated crosscutting proposals, and public input.”
The reform efforts are purported to, among other things, “create a lean, accountable, more efficient government that works for the American people.”
The government hiring freeze that President Trump instituted on January 23, 2017 ends with release of the new guidance memo, Mulvaney said on Tuesday. “This does not mean that the agencies will be free to hire willy nilly,” he added. Mulvaney stated that the guidance simply replaces the “across the board hiring freeze” with “a more surgical plan.”
As the Trump Admin FY 2018 Budget Blueprint shows, some agencies were appropriated more federal funds, while others received fewer — so some will correspondingly be granted an increase in hiring allowance while others will “end up paring their FTEs even greater than they would have had during the hiring freeze.”
