I have a question from a GovLoop member that I’m hoping you can weigh in on. This member said his biggest challenge at work is getting two agencies with the same or similar mission to work together. His particular example is about army agencies, though I think his challenge can apply to other fields.
For example, I’m interested in working for the federal government in an agency related to the environment/conservation/sustainability. In my job search, I’m finding that there are so many more departments and agencies that work in these areas: Fish and Wildlife Service, General Services Administration, Environmental Protection Agency, National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, Forest Service… the list goes on. Do these step on each others’ toes? How do they work together to get information?
Do you have examples of how your agency works with other agencies that have similar missions?
