Deputy Secretary Of State Discusses State Department, USAID Reorganization Plans During U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee Hearing

Devex: Sullivan sees a leaner, more diverse State Dept, no USAID merger
“Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan fielded questions Tuesday about how the State Department plans to lead more effectively and recruit a more diverse body of employees — all while operating with one-third of its present budget. … The [House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing] offered some clearer indication of how the reform process will likely materialize on a few specific points at State and USAID. Here are our top three takeaways of things to look out for moving forward. 1. Employment with diversity in mind … 2. There’s a need for more humanitarian engagement — but not merging with USAID … 3. The reform process won’t happen overnight or easily…” (Lieberman, 9/27).
