Embracing Effective Change

The Selective Service System continues to seek ways to work more efficiently at less cost to the taxpayer. Rigid, bureaucratic organizations cannot deliver what today's society demands: speed, personal service, and convenience. The Agency is working to realize the President's vision, articulated in the National Performance Review, to create a government that works better and costs less, and is focused on customer service and program streamlining.

The SSS has made many improvements with these specific results.

• The budget remained constant from FY 1995 to FY 1996.

• Authorized civilian Full-Time Equivalent positions decreased.

• The Selective Service System's Strategic Plan FY 1996 - 2002 is in place, although not required until 1997.

• The Agency continues to work with the Office of Management and Budget on executing the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 that stresses customer service and greater efficiencies.

• Expanded use of technology allowed increased accuracy, better feedback and program review.

• Within current resources, the "Service to America" program was initiated with the cooperation of two other Federal agencies.
