For over two decades, the federal government has sought to advance shared services policy and business practices within agencies and across the executive branch. Yet limited progress has been made on both fronts because this policy-centric approach skips past the foundations of design, structure, and funding. Agencies should take a step back for a more holistic approach to consider mission enablement functions and their funding. By doing so, agencies can manage these functions through a more rational, transparent, accountable, and consolidated approach, linked to mission outcomes.
