  13. Transformational Change • The Federal Government’s debt is at $16.4 trillion and counting. • According to the Congressional Budget Office, the U.S. is on track to add an incremental $10 trillion to our existing debt over the next ten years (less tax increases recently agreed upon--$737 billion (($618 billion in taxes plus $119 billion in interest savings)). • ‘Consider the president’s budget, which by law must include projections of taxing and spending over the next decade. …the president and his advisers proposed cutting the discretionary part of the budget, devoted to everything except defense and other security agencies, to 1.7 percent of economic output by 2022, down from 3.1 percent last year. …the Republicans’ last detailed proposal about taxes and spending refers to discretionary spending, except national defense, a broader category than that considered in the president’s budget. They too cut it to the bone: to about 2.1 percent of economic output in 2022, from 4.3 percent last year. To put it in perspective, this would cut the government’s civilian discretionary budget to the smallest it has been as a share of the economy at least since the Eisenhower administration…’ * • Clearly, NASA will be competing for dwindling resources. * - The New York Times, December 19, 2012

  14. Shared Services Life Cycle • Life-cycle phases of a shared services organization: • Economies of scale and labor arbitrage • Increased quality with focus on support of all employees • Efficient and effective IT Support, Permanent Change of Station Processing, Expense Report processing, etc., in order to increase the focus and to optimize the time the widget makers spend making widgets • Since all business data elements will be passing through the Shared Services Center, develop and strengthen analytic support for business operations (marry the inputs with the outputs - forecasting trends, etc.) • Virtual

  15. NASA’s Future State - What is the Solution? Part of the Solution: • Leverage the NSSC • Administratively efficient • Provide increasingly cost-effective support to allow engineers and scientists to be focused on what they do • Leverage NASA systems and drive business analytics around NASA projects and programs and post the projects and programs online (budget, schedule, and forecasts) • Transparency • Accountability • Trust • To the American Public: Report the efficiency (or lack of efficiency) of the work of the government

  16. Conclusion Change is Coming! • We have many challenges ahead • The government is extremely large and diverse • It will take: • New ideas • You, and others like you, will need to bring their “A-Game” to the table in order for the Federal government to move into the 21st Century
