Abstract : People said it couldn't be done. When President Bill Clinton announced in March 1993 that "the federal government is broken and we intend to fix it," old hands in Washington, D.C., shook their heads. You'll never fix the federal government, they said. Been there, done that, doesn't work. When he announced a governmentwide initiative to reinvent government called the National Performance Review, the skeptics raised a collective eyebrow. And six months later, when the National Performance Review's first report- From Red Tape to Results: Creating a Government that Works Better and Costs Less the blueprint for reinvention-was published, they sighed, Another report for the shelf" But they didn't count on the experts President Clinton called in to run the show.
