Reverse Auctioning: Saving Money and Increasing Transparency

Monday, October 17th, 2011 - 13:35
Author(s): 
Simply put, reverse auctions are auctions that enable sellers to “bid down” prices for their goods and services. The use of reverse auctions has substantially increased since Wyld’s initial report in 2000, albeit at a slower pace than anticipated in the earlier study. This new report contains original research on the potential of reverse auctions as a government cost-saving tool that also saves time and increases transparency.

Food Safety—Emerging Public-Private Approaches: A Perspective for Local, State, and Federal Government Leaders

Monday, November 22nd, 2010 - 15:16
A slate of recent legislative initiatives at the national level represents the most expansive reform of food safety in the U.S. since the 1930s. Spurred, in part, by recent high-profile food contaminations, new legislation is now under consideration in Congress that not only gives the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) greater regulatory powers over the nation’s food providers—but also dramatically alters the food safety landscape. Four separate bills have been introduced in this session of Congress.

Thursday, December 10th, 2009 - 15:32
If a tree falls in a forest, did it make a sound? The November 15th release of federal department and agency annual performance and accountability reports went largely un-noticed.  Not a mention in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal or Washington Post (even its Federal Page).

Some Members of Congress and free-lance politicians presume to comment on the thoughts and intentions of the "Framers" or the "Founding Fathers" without the benefit of actually reading their words. The Business of Government was logistically more difficult then, though more civil and intimate. Their collaboration and transparency is evident in the drafts of various seminal documents of the Republic of the United States of America. What can innovative and creative citizens with their elected representatives do to promote efficient national planning in a public forum using 21st century communications tools ?
