PSC Recommends Revisions to OMB Memo on Eliminating Agency Reporting


Arlington, V.A. (June 27, 2017) — PSC sent a letter to OMB Director Mick Mulvaney on June 22 outlining recommendations for changes to OMB’s June 15 memo, which eliminated or modified dozens of agency reporting requirements included in prior OMB memos. 

“PSC strongly supports removing outdated and unnecessary regulatory and administrative burdens on federal agencies, government contractors, and taxpayers,” said PSC executive vice president and counsel Alan Chvotkin. “PSC also supports OMB’s initiative to eliminate, modify or pause most of the 59 OMB documents addressed in the memo; however, we have concerns with three actions covered in the memo for which we recommended changes.”

PSC’s letter requests that revisions be made accordingly to the following: 
1. Accelerated payments to small business and small business subcontractors
2. Conducting acquisition assessments under OMB Circular A-123
3. Reporting of Priority Goals to Performance.gov
