GAO discussed the changes that have occurred at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) as a result of OMB 2000, focusing on: (1) changes in OMB organizational structure, responsibilities, staffing, and statutory offices; (2) OMB attention to management issues in the budget process; and (3) OMB plans to evaluate OMB 2000. GAO noted that: (1) OMB has reorganized and replaced budget program areas with resource management offices (RMO) staffed by employees reassigned to new program examiner positions; (2) RMO have assumed the statutory offices' oversight responsibilities, while the statutory offices have retained responsibility for developing governmentwide management policies; (3) increased OMB attention to agency management issues in the 1996 budget formulation process has allowed examiners more leverage for change; (4) although some OMB personnel have expressed concern regarding their expanded responsibilities, they generally have a positive view of OMB 2000; (5) while OMB originally planned to evaluate OMB 2000 as a distinct management initiative, it plans to more broadly assess its effectiveness in formulating and implementing government management policies; and (6) it is unclear whether positive results can be sustained over the long term, since OMB 2000 is still in its beginning stages.
