In the Cuts, Consolidations, and Savings volume, the Administration details the 210 cuts, consolidations, and savings measures that are proposed in the 2013 Budget. These proposals total more than $24 billion in 2013, and $520 billion through 2022. First, we have identified programs that are no longer needed and should be eliminated. For example, the Budget proposes cutting programs within National Science Foundation’s Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering Research that were designed to have a limited duration and have already achieved their goals. We are also proposing to cut an Air Force satellite system that is no longer needed to meet mission requirements. Other cuts target duplicative grants programs whose activities can be accomplished through existing programs. Second, we have singled out opportunities to consolidate programs that are duplicative of each other and could deliver more for less if combined. For example by consolidating the Bureau of the Public Debtand the Financial Management Service, the operational arms of Treasury’s Fiscal Service, to share a single administrative, management, and leadership structure, Treasury can save taxpayer dollars while better leveraging the expertise and resources of the two bureaus to strengthen and modernize financial management. Finally, there are a range of actions that we are taking to save money in the operations of Government. These range from the commonsensical—reducing the use of expensive overnight express shipping, using video teleconferencing in the place of costly travel, and migrating forms and publications to digital formats—to the more ambitious such as consolidating regional offices across the country and shutting down excess data centers.
