Abstract : No politician has ever lost an election for bashing the federal bureaucracy. To many Americans, the last two decades have been a period of uncontrolled government spending resulting in persistent budget deficits and a perception that the government is out of control and unresponsive to the public. So it is not surprising that over this same time period, three 'outsider' Presidents, Carter, Reagan, and Clinton, were elected saying they were going to change the way the government 'works'. This paper will review the round of reform introduced by the Clinton administration, known as 'reinvention' or the National Performance Review (NPR) and its impact on the Federal labor-management relationship. It will be argued that legislation governing our federal labor relationship should not be amended based on proposals introduced under NPR.
