Rep. Edolphus Towns (D-N.Y.), new chairman of a House oversight subcommittee, today said the federal government may need to restructure some agencies so they run more efficiently.
The government struggles to run smoothly, with its disjointed programs and stovepipe systems, said Towns, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s subcommittee on Government Management, Organization and Procurement. In an interview with Federal Computer Week, he said his subcommittee will dig into those problems to find solutions to save taxpayers’ dollars.
“Many [agencies] are broken, and they need to be fixed,” Towns said. “That’s what we’re going to be about.”
