Want better value for your tax dollars?
Here’s my suggestion:
Let’s require that 75 percent of all people receiving public funding for their work
spend 75 percent of their time providing a direct service or direct product
to end users/citizens.
Those providing support services to this initial 75 percent would be lumped in with the remaining 25 percent.
Of the remaining 25 percent, let’s require them to spend 25 percent of their time providing a direct service or direct product to end users/citizens, too.
Each publicly funded activity would be evaluated according to its face to face connection with actual end users/citizens.
