From the Document: "As part of the President's Management Agenda, the Administration will continue to build upon successful efforts to maximize the value of every taxpayer dollar by enhancing productivity and efficiency and achieving cost savings across the Government. Consistent with the Management Agenda, the Budget continues efforts such as reducing administrative overhead, increasing the use of shared services, increasing strategic sourcing and category management, cutting improper payments, saving on real estate costs, reforming military acquisition, and consolidating data centers. The Budget also continues efforts to reorganize and consolidate Federal programs to reduce duplication and improve efficiency. The President is renewing his request for the Congress to revive the reorganization authority given to nearly every President from Herbert Hoover to Ronald Reagan. In effect, the President is asking to have the same authority that any business owner has to reorganize or streamline operations to meet changing circumstances and customer demand. The Budget outlines a set of ambitious cross-Government consolidations intended to serve as a blueprint for reorganizing and reforming Government, including consolidating the six primary business and trade agencies into a single agency responsible for fostering economic growth; combining the two largest food-safety related agencies into a single agency responsible for inspections, enforcement, and outbreak prevention; and continuing efforts to streamline science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs across Government."
