Presidential Executive Order on a Comprehensive Plan for Reorganizing the Executive Branch

EXECUTIVE ORDER

COMPREHENSIVE PLAN FOR REORGANIZING THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1.  Purpose.  This order is intended to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and accountability of the executive branch by directing the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (Director) to propose a plan to reorganize governmental functions and eliminate unnecessary agencies (as defined in section 551(1) of title 5, United States Code), components of agencies, and agency programs.

Sec. 2.  Proposed Plan to Improve the Efficiency, Effectiveness, and Accountability of Federal Agencies, Including, as Appropriate, to Eliminate or Reorganize Unnecessary or Redundant Federal Agencies.  (a)  Within 180 days of the date of this order, the head of each agency shall submit to the Director a proposed plan to reorganize the agency, if appropriate, in order to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and accountability of that agency.

(b)  The Director shall publish a notice in the Federal Register inviting the public to suggest improvements in the organization and functioning of the executive branch and shall consider the suggestions when formulating the proposed plan described in subsection (c) of this section.

(c)  Within 180 days after the closing date for the submission of suggestions pursuant to subsection (b) of this section, the Director shall submit to the President a proposed plan to reorganize the executive branch in order to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and accountability of agencies.  The proposed plan shall include, as appropriate, recommendations to eliminate unnecessary agencies, components of agencies, and agency programs, and to merge functions.  The proposed plan shall include recommendations for any legislation or administrative measures necessary to achieve the proposed reorganization.

(d)  In developing the proposed plan described in subsection (c) of this section, the Director shall consider, in addition to any other relevant factors:

(i)    whether some or all of the functions of an agency, a component, or a program are appropriate for the Federal Government or would be better left to State or local governments or to the private sector through free enterprise;

(ii)   whether some or all of the functions of an agency, a component, or a program are redundant, including with those of another agency, component, or program;

(iii)  whether certain administrative capabilities necessary for operating an agency, a component, or a program are redundant with those of another agency, component, or program;

(iv)   whether the costs of continuing to operate an agency, a component, or a program are justified by the public benefits it provides; and

(v)    the costs of shutting down or merging agencies, components, or programs, including the costs of addressing the equities of affected agency staff.

(e) In developing the proposed plan described in subsection (c) of this section, the Director shall consult with the head of each agency and, consistent with applicable law, with persons or entities outside the Federal Government with relevant expertise in organizational structure and management.

Sec. 3.  General Provisions.  (a)  Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or

(ii) the functions of the Director relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

(b) This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

(c) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

  1. I find it interesting and ironic that when looking up the definition of “fascism”, the dictionary includes “right wing” in the description, but the characteristics listed belong to the last 8 years under obama i.e. totalitarianism and dictatorship.

    So, it appears that the ones who like to throw the fascist word the most are those who said nothing when the head of the country was actually a fascist ruler.

    Be ready to fight trigglypuffs in the streets.

  2. (iv) whether the costs of continuing to operate an agency, a component, or a program are justified by the public benefits it provides; and

    I like the sound of it all but love this section the best.
    Who benefits from government was a core principle of the found fathers in that who needs federal when a state works, who needs a state when a local works.

    The federal government and hence the presidency was meant to prevent abuse from Government, facilitate liberty and justice, and give us a central focus of leadership, style, and pride.

    Lately we’ve had none of that and instead a clown who usurped power while disrespecting the eligibility and honor of the office.

    Thank you President Trump.

  3. Just like all the people who are currently raging in the streets against Trump after not voting for anybody, there will be zero constructive suggestions from anyone on the left, and they will be pissing and moaning when Trump implements suggested conservative solutions.

  4. “This calls for an immediate discussion!” comes to mind.
    Another agency to figger out what to do about all the other agencies, that’s what will be suggested.
    If he wants to get rid of an agency, he’ll need to get rid of the beneficiaries of that agency.

    …because…that’s what ALL totalitarian regimes do…right?!

  6. Who is the Director Office of Management and Budget right now. Do they have a web site? I have some suggestions and I’m sure many more Citizens have worth-while thoughts.
