Since 1993, the National Performance Review (which became the National Partnership for Reinventing Government in 1998) has developed initiatives to tackle areas in need of reform. We have mobilized staff and resources across government to study issues and take action. Some of our initiatives have been spun off to appropriate agencies for implementation as reinvention began to take hold. Procurement reform, which has been wildly successful, is a good example. Below are some of our current or recent initiatives. Also see Partnerships.
