ORG06: Identify and Change Legislative Barriers to Cross- Organizational Cooperation


Identify restrictive regulations and laws that are barriers to cross- organizational cooperation and develop legislative proposals to eliminate them. (3)

Restrictive legislative provisions such as those contained in the Treasury, Postal Service, and General Appropriations Act of 1993 (P.L. 102-393), the Intergovernmental Personnel Act, and Title 31 of the U.S. Code, should be modified to make funding of cross-agency activities easier when it is in the public's best interest.

Eliminate phrases such as "no part of any appropriation contained in this or any other Act shall be available for interagency financing of boards, commissions, councils, committees, or similar groups" and "which do not have a prior and specific statutory approval to receive financial support from more than one agency or instrumentality."
