Government management never sleeps.
Even as the management side of the administration of President Donald Trump still is far from coming together, the Office of Management and Budget isn’t taking it easy awaiting the new political appointees.
OMB issued two significant memos last week — one addressing challenges around agency-vendor communications and the other updating agency requirements for how they respond to breaches of personal information.
These two are among a boatload of memos coming from OMB over the last year. In fiscal 2017, OMB has issued 12 memos. Over the last 12 months, the administration sent out 31 memos ranging from the mundane, like apportionment requirements for the continuing resolution, to those trying to make major changes, like to how the government buys technology and pays senior executives.
