This report provides various approaches to how government can undertake reorganization initiatives. It identifies four historical driving forces for reorganizations: to make government work better, to save money, to enhance power, and to address pressing problems. The report then examines four principal reorganization strategies that policy makers have used in the past: commissions, presidential reorganization authority, executive-branch reorganization staff, and congressional initiatives. Four strategies to bring about organizational change in the federal government in the 21st century are then identified: virtual reorganization through e-government, virtual reorganization through coordinating councils, reorganization by commission, and reorganization by legislative authorization.
