The implementation of the following recommendations will help put the country on the right track to a more effective, accountable, open, and honest government – one that is truly responsive to the needs of its citizens. Furthermore, while it is always a goal to have the best possible government at the lowest feasible cost, the financial crisis our country faces makes it even more imperative that the next President more effectively use government resources. POGO believes our recommendations will make significant strides towards shrinking the cost of government operations, while at the same time making them work better. The initial costs of these reforms will be more than offset by the longterm savings for the taxpayer. We welcome the opportunity to provide more in-depth details about our proposals.
