A Panel of the National Academy of Public Administration today released a new white paper on the future of public service, called No Time to Wait Part 2: Building a Public Service for the 21st Century. The report was sponsored by the Volcker Alliance and the Samuel L. Freeman Charitable Trust.
“The Academy is pleased to present this very important follow-up to the original No Time to Wait report,” said Teresa W. Gerton, President and CEO of the National Academy of Public Administration. “As this new report underscores, we cannot wait any longer to adapt to the changing nature of work. Our government functions and capabilities are getting further and further behind as technology rapidly evolves all around us. Now is the time to launch a comprehensive and strategic effort to rebuild the federal workforce for the 21st century, in order to more effectively serve our citizens.”
