OMB looking for budgets that are data driven

The Office of Management and Budget wants next year’s federal agency budget submissions to be more data driven than they’ve been in past years. Larry Allen, the president of Allen Federal Business Partners, said that is a fine in principle, but the whole idea rests on the notion that agencies have high-quality data to support their programs in the first place. Mr. Allen talked about this with Federal News Network Deputy Editor Jared Serbu.
