Jeff Schlagenhauf: Agencies Facing Challenges in Evidence-Based Policymaking

1 min read

Jeff Schlagenhauf, associate director for economic policy with the Office of Management and Budget, noted at a recent Bipartisan Policy Center event that the government is facing obstacles on implementing evidence-based policymaking, FCW reported Friday.

The proposed evidence-driven process includes establishing a government-wide data advisory committee and identifying chief data officers and their learning agenda, he said.

Diana Epstein, leader of the OMB evidence team, said there is no consistency across government agencies regarding use of evidence-based methods in the government’s business functions. She noted her office is working on integrating evidence-based policymaking into budgeting operations and other existing processes.

OMB has been conducting a forum that enables agencies to present their own decision-making processes every month. The office also launched an intranet page to help agencies manage the effort.
