Managing the 2012 Budget Cuts in House Offices

managing-budget-cuts-coverHouse offices are facing an unprecedented management challenge – cutting their annual expenditures sharply in two successive years. To help offices manage this difficult process, CMF produced a short manual that includes:

  • House Member office expenditure data to help offices assess their own spending practices;
  • An overview of the primary strategies that offices are planning on using to cut their budgets;
  • A broad list of strategies or ideas that offices should consider in deciding how to cut their budgets; and
  • A discussion of some of the possible downsides to the primary budget-cutting strategies that offices may not be considering and some additional strategies offices should consider.
