WASHINGTON, Jan. 10, 2012 – TODAY, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will hold a media conference call to discuss USDA’s Blueprint for Stronger Service (Hyperlink release), which was announced by Secretary Vilsack yesterday at the American Farm Bureau Federation's annual meeting. USDA’s Blueprint for Stronger Service is a plan to help producers continue to drive America’s economy by streamlining operations and cutting costs.

The Blueprint for Stronger Service is based on a Department-wide review of operations conducted as part of the Administration’s Campaign to Cut Waste, launched by President Obama and Vice President Biden to make government work better and more efficiently for the American people. The agency took a hard look at all USDA operations, from headquarters to field offices. The end result is a plan that will create optimal use of USDA people, better results for USDA customers and greater efficiencies for American taxpayers.
