I'm inclined to vote yes, but this should be governments mentality. From TuckerWantsLiberty: How about you enact budget cuts, with no guaranteed annual growth, and then tell them to figure it out. I think the assumption that all these agencies waste money is spot on. But instead of incentivizing through rewards for reporting, how about incentivizing through "Your agency now has 10% less money. Find the most wasteful 10% to eliminate, and prove that that doesn't include your own job."
