  4. 4. DAY ONE Wednesday, May 6, 2009 7:30 Conference Registration and Continental Breakfast 8:30 KEYNOTE ADDRESS: A Vision for Accountable Government “We can no longer afford to sustain the old ways when we know there are new and more efficient ways to getting the job done,” said President Barack Obama. The theme of change has moved beyond the campaign to become the central motif of Obama’s presidency. One of the biggest changes Obama has promised to make is a fundamental reconfiguration of former President George W. Bush’s Management Agenda. Obama has pledged to eliminate ideological performance goals and replace them with goals Americans care about and that are based on congressional intent and feedback from those served by government programs. Although few would disagree with the reasoning, it is unclear how we will reach this goal. This Keynote will offer insights into Obama’s Management Agenda and what government managers and employees should expect moving forward. Frank Reeder Founder, The Reeder Group Member of the OMB Transition Review Team 9:30 LEADERSHIP PANEL: Understand Federal Policy and Achieve Program Results There is one major question looming at the start of an Administration: which policies and programs should be kept and which need to be modified or even thrown out? Each administration leaves a legacy of performance mandates and policy outcomes for the next, but what does Obama need to do to achieve real improvement in federal policy and program outcomes? And more importantly, who is responsible for achieving these improvements? Is it up to senior officials and agency executives or is it up to the OMB? During this Leadership Panel, you will hear leading federal policy experts discuss concrete ways to achieve desired policy outcomes. Jane Norris Jon Desenberg Jonathan D. Breul Moderator Senior Policy Director Executive Director, IBM Center for Federal News Radio The Performance Institute The Business of Government Formerly Senior Advisor to the Deputy Director, Management in the 10:45 Office of Management and Budget Break and Refreshments 11:00 SPOTLIGHT ON CONGRESS: Examine the Congressional Appropriations Process and Its Impact on Your Agency “No money should be drawn from the treasury, but in consequence of appropriations made by law” states the United States Constitution. In theory, appropriations are necessary to fund programs that keep Americans safe, educated and secure. But with a national deficit approaching $1 trillion, are tax dollars really being put to their best use? Obama’s pledge to conduct a line by line review of the federal budget to seek programs that are not performing and to eliminate earmarks has been loud and clear, and its promise of eliminating waste has been aimed at Congress. There are new ideas and mandates on where and how government money will be spent and this session will explore the impact those policies will have on your agency. Mike Hettinger Director, Grant Thornton Global Public Sector Former Staff Director, Subcommittee on Government Management www.InnoGOV.org
  5. 5. DAY ONE CONTINUED Wednesday, May 6, 2009 2:00 12:00 Lunch Break Apply an Objective Evaluation System to Measure Success 1:00 Every government agency is required to create and use a Develop a Performance-Based Framework set of performance measures, but how can you be sure to Achieve Program Outcomes your agency is measuring the right things? This session Improving government performance has been a key will equip you with the knowledge to determine specific component of every president’s platform in recent questions your agency’s program evaluation must history. With the creation of a Chief Performance Officer answer and help you gather tools to choose the right and White House “SWAT Team,” Obama has affirmed program evaluation model for your government program. his serious commitment to this promise.

  6. 6. DAY TWO Thursday, May 7, 2009 7:30 Continental Breakfast 8:30 KEYNOTE ADDRESS: The Future of PART Improving government performance is a common idea shared by many Presidential Administrations. Succeeding Presidents have been able to build off of the initiatives of preceding Presidents. President Barack Obama has committed to holding federal programs accountable for delivering results to the American people and making performance transparent. Using the tools and methods created by past Administrations and Congress, what are the logical next steps to systematically improve performance across the federal government? Marcus Peacock, former associate director of the Office of Management and Budget, led the team that created the Program Assessment Rating Tool or PART, which won Harvard University’s Innovations in Government award. He also created the first ‘Stat’ program in the federal government, EPAStat, while serving as the Deputy Administrator at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). During his tenure, EPA was the first federal agency to win the President’s Quality Award for Overall Management back-to-back. In this keynote, Mr. Peacock will discuss his recommendations on the next steps for performance management in the federal government. Marcus Peacock Former Deputy Administrator, United States Environmental Protection Agency Creator of the Performance Assessment Rating Tool 9:30 LEADERSHIP PANEL: Discover New Ways to Overcome Budgetary Challenges and Fund Necessary Programs President Barack Obama has recently said it is time to rethink outmoded ways of doing things, that it’s time to embrace new systems and technologies and to take initiative in developing better practices. With the increased emphasis on eliminating programs that we don’t need and that don’t work, agency leaders cannot afford to sustain the old ways of doing things. Program directors need to step up and think of new and more efficient ways to fund and manage the programs within their federal agency. 10:45 Break and Refreshments 11:00 SPOTLIGHT ON CONGRESS: Building the Case for a Congressional Office of Performance Creating a high-performing federal government is a goal for President Barack Obama’s administration. However, in order for government to perform well as a whole, performance management must be considered important by all agencies and branches of government individually. All federal agencies are required to appoint a Performance Improvement Officer (PIO) who is the coordinator of all performance management initiatives. If PIOs are integral to achieving performance in federal agencies, why not create the same thing for Congress? Performance Institute Senior Policy Director Jon Desenberg developed the basis for a Congressional Office of Performance that would be responsible for improving performance in the legislative branch. He recently gave a presentation on the Hill about the Office of Performance and why it is a necessary step in achieving overall government performance and accountability.
