Overview Edit

The Office of Government-wide Policy (OGP), within the General Services Administration, works collaboratively with many other agencies and stakeholders to coordinate, develop, and implement the strategic and operational actions that will strengthen and protect the critical U.S. Government information infrastructure.

To reach the goal of improving government-wide management of property, technology, and administrative services, the OGP builds and maintains a policy framework, by (1) incorporating the requirements of federal laws, Executive Orders, and other regulatory material into policies and guidelines, (2) facilitating government-wide reform to provide federal managers with business-like incentives and tools and flexibility to prudently manage their assets, and (3) identifying, evaluating, and promoting best practices to improve the efficiency of management processes.

Guided by the principles of the President's Management Agenda and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), some of OGP's recent efforts have been devoted to providing leadership in the development of a policy environment and key enablers for electronic government, and supporting OMB in the implementation of various E-Gov initiatives to standardize and streamline government processes.

The new model calls for involvement of other federal agencies, the private sector, interested parties, and other stakeholders from the very onset of policy review and/or formulation.
