President Obama Created A New Position And Initiative To Get The Taxpayer’s Full Value For Our Tax Dollars

In 2009 President Obama established a National Performance Officer (NPO) charged with saving the federal government money and making federal operations more efficient. The Office of Management and Budget is charged with the mission of spending the government's money more efficiently to ensure that consumers and tax payers get what they pay for and that their money is not spent on valueless products. The officer’s main job is to bring new business ideas to Washington to help impact the budget problem by cutting the pervasive waste and fraud that have always plagued government procurement. As he has promised in his Presidential campaign in 2008, President Obama created a new position in the government to change the way business is conducted in America and give the people's business back to the people. ANOTHER PROMISE KEPT!
