Paul Bartley, Program Support Center Director, HHS

The last several administrations have pushed federal agencies to share services they have in common. The idea is to cut redundancy and boost efficiency. Shared services have certainly been a priority for the Obama Office of Management and Budget. Some managers worry that shared services means they'll have to bring in more contractors. But in fact several departments offer a wide range of administrative services available for sharing. One of them is the Program Support Center at Health and Human Services. Paul Bartley is director of the Center. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with more on the programs, and how to make them catch on.
