This goal will:   eliminate low-value, unnecessary, and outdated policies and requirements issued by central management agencies like the Office of Management and Budget, the Office of Personnel Management, and the General Services Administration; develop a process to assess and minimize the burden of such guidance on Federal agencies; create incentives for Federal agencies to regularly review and streamline their own administrative requirements that impose burdens on their bureaus and programs; and reduce burden through tools like integrated IT and automation software.
Too often, requirements persist over time
despite changes to the circumstances they
were intended to address. Hundreds of burdensome
rules and requirements have built
up over decades, forcing Federal agencies to
devote valuable resources to compliance that is
no longer meaningful. Time, energy, and dollars
spent complying with outdated, redundant, and
unnecessary requirements can be better spent
on accomplishing mission outcomes.
A Federal Government that shifts time, effort, and funding from burdensome requirements to high value work will:   improve the return on investment of central-management guidance to Federal agencies; reduce compliance requirements for Federal agencies; work with Congress to eliminate outdated
legislative reporting requirements for Federal agencies; and reduce unnecessary costs and compliance requirements within individual agencies.
