FY2019 Budget: Government Reorganization and Federal Workforce Reform [February 22, 2018] [open pdf - 119KB]
"The 'Budget of the United States Government, Fiscal Year 2019' stated, in a largely general way, planned initiatives related to government reorganization and federal workforce reform. The initiatives follow from Executive Order 13781, 'Comprehensive Plan for Reorganizing the Executive Branch,' issued by President Donald Trump on March 13, 2017, and two Office of Management and Budget (OMB) memorandums. The memorandums, M-17-22, 'Comprehensive Plan for Reforming the Federal Government and Reducing the Federal Civilian Workforce,' issued on April 12, 2017, and M-17-28, 'Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 Budget Guidance,' issued on July 7, 2017, required federal agencies to create short- and long-term workforce strategic plans and then submit the long-term plans along with their Agency Reform Plans to OMB concurrent with their budget requests. This Insight summarizes the budget's discussion of these matters."
