Testifying before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, Alliance President Shelley Metzenbaum urges attention to mission-focused improvements – finding and spreading what works, preventing problems, and keeping their costs as low as possible. She reviews progress made during the first term of the Obama Administration on mission-focused performance management, explains the approach taken and reasons why, and offers recommendations for the second-term management agenda – urging Congress to authorize cross-agency hiring and the executive branch to fix the federal internship system.
