About the Task Force

The Senate Budget Committee's Government Performance Task Force was established in 2009 to support the Committee's monitoring and oversight capacity. The Task Force is charged with examining the information base for decision-making in Congress and identifying opportunities to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of federal programs and services.

Senator Mark Warner (D-Va) is chairman of the Task Force. See all members of the Performance Task Force here

“The continuation of the Task Force represents a strong, ongoing commitment from the Budget Committee to keep looking for smart ways to save taxpayer dollars by improving how our government works,” Sen. Warner said.  “Our Task Force will pursue additional reforms that will reduce duplication, break down agency silos, build a more collaborative culture across government, and modernize how we use technology to improve transparency and accountability. This kind of oversight work typically does not generate a lot of headlines, but I look forward to working with my colleagues from both sides of the aisle to find new ways to save taxpayer money."
