Did you know GovLoop has a group called "Budgeteers"?
It was created by the American Association for Budget and Program Analysis (AABPA) to gather practitioners and academics in the fields of budget and program analysis.
They held an event today at the Capital Hilton in Washington, DC, under the theme, "Budgeting in a Changing Environment: The New Normal." Several GovLoopers participated in the day, and I had the chance to moderate a panel (special thanks to Juliet Vargas for the invitation) that included:
- Mary Davie, Assistant Commissioner, Office of Assisted Acquisition Services, Federal Acquisition Service, U.S. General Services Administration
- Shannon Finnegan, Senior Analyst, Strategic Issues, U.S. Government Accountability Office
- JoAnna Berry, Web and Data Librarian, U.S. Government Accountability Office
- Phil Wenger, Deputy Policy Lead, Budget Formulation and Execution Line of Business
Each of them highlighted their great projects, from Mary Davie's Acquisition 2.0 group here on GovLoop and the Better Buy Project crowdsourcing site to GAO's RecoveryAct.gov wiki to OMB's MAX Community. Check out our slides below.
BY THE WAY: GovLoop wants to build out it's Scribd and Slideshare sites, making them a repository of great content for other government employees. If you have slides or documents for us to include, please add a link in the comments below.
