Lots of federal processes are inefficient and wasteful, but many others have become more efficient and effective over time. We need a competition to highlight the best so they can spread.
The headline read, “Pentagon Buries Evidence of $125 Billion in Bureaucratic Waste.” The Washington Post article said that, had its recommendations been followed, the 2015 study “would not have required layoffs of civil servants or reductions in military personnel. Instead, it would have streamlined the bureaucracy through attrition and early retirements, curtailed high-priced contractors and made better use of information technology.” It’s no secret that lots of federal processes are inefficient and wasteful. Unlike in the private sector, there are few pressures toward efficiency. But through ongoing competition within government we can do better.
