Office of Governmentwide Policy
Website : http://www.gsa.gov/portal/content/104550?utm_source=OGP&utm_medium=print-radio&utm_term=governmentwidepolicy&utm_campaign=shortcuts
In December 1995, GSA created the Office of Government-wide Policy (OGP) to consolidate its policy functions into a single organization. OGP's policymaking authority covers the areas of personal and real property, travel and transportation, information technology, regulatory information and use of federal advisory committees. OGP's strategic direction is to ensure that government-wide policies encourage agencies to develop and utilize the best, most cost effective management practices for the conduct of their specific programs. To reach the goal of improving government-wide management of property, technology, and administrative services, OGP builds and maintains a policy framework, by (1) incorporating the requirements of federal laws, Executive Orders, and other regulatory material into policies and guidelines, (2) facilitating government-wide reform to provide federal managers with business-like incentives and tools and flexibility to prudently manage their assets, and (3) identifying, evaluating, and promoting best practices to improve efficiency of management processes. Guided by the principles of the President's Management Agenda and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), some of OGP's recent efforts have been devoted to providing leadership in the development of a policy environment and key enablers for electronic government, and supporting OMB in the implementation of various E-Gov initiatives to standardize and streamline government processes. The new model calls for involvement of other federal agencies, the private sector, interested parties, and other stakeholders from the very onset of policy review and/or formulation. Such collaborative efforts are seen to offer numerous advantages, not least of which is to ensure "buy-in" from the policy customers.
