Labor Advises on Modernizing Government – NextGov

On Thursday afternoon, more than 50 of the nation’s top chief executive officers participated in a White House forum on how the government can use technology to save money and improve performance. In addition to including top federal leaders in technology and government performance, the forum also reached out to federal labor groups for advice on how the government can streamline operations and become a better employer.

Colleen Kelley, president of the National Treasury Employees Union, said on Thursday that NTEU plans to highlight the difficulty federal agencies face in funding long-term technology projects, in part because of the government’s annual budget cycle.
