First, the President called on Congress to pass PAYGO legislation. Next, the administration will create incentives for agencies to cut costs and identify savings. Third, the administration will establish a process for every government employee to submit their ideas on how their agency can save money and perform better. Finally, the administration will reach outside of Washington for ideas by convening a forum on reforming government for the 21st century later this year."
