Partnership for Public Service statement on the release of the President’s Management Agenda
November 19, 2021
WASHINGTON – Partnership for Public Service President and CEO Max Stier offered the following statement after the release of the President’s Management Agenda:
“While the pandemic laid bare some of government’s most longstanding shortcomings, our government has emerged stronger, smarter and nimbler. The implementation of the president’s management agenda will be critical to continue these advances and build a more modern and effective government,” Stier said. “I applaud the Biden administration for focusing on these vital management issues, including the top priority of strengthening and empowering the federal workforce as the most important element of our government and central to meeting the needs of the public.”
Earlier this year, the Partnership for Public Service released 38 specific recommendations for rebuilding and revitalizing our government as part of its Roadmap for Renewing the Federal Government. Many of these recommendations, including supporting interagency collaboration and addressing critical skills gaps across the federal cybersecurity workforce, are addressed in the president’s management agenda.
“The release of the management agenda is a key first step. Fully addressing outdated federal management systems will require collaboration and cooperation across government,” Stier said. “I encourage the administration and Congress to work together to truly modernize our government and strengthen our democracy.”
