Reinventing USDA: missions must come first
The US Department of Agriculture has become a symbol of public dissatisfaction with the federal government because of a suspicion that taxpayers are paying more for fewer, less efficient services. The image of the USDA as an inefficient and unresponsive organization is being furthered by media articles. This paper examines the current situation of the USDA, and proposes that the fundamental problem is the absence of a clear and current mission.
