April 29, 2014 -- This week on "Off the Shelf", Tom Davis, director of Federal Government Affairs for Deloitte, provides his vision for a smart lean government.

The former Congressman from Virginia's 11th district makes a compelling case that the current budget challenges demand a move to a smart lean government model.

Smart lean government increases efficiency and effectiveness by reducing duplicative operations, breaking down silos across the federal enterprise, and leveraging shared services such as "cloud computing."
