How do the president, Congress, and courts exercise control over the bureaucracy?
The president takes charge of reforming the bureaucracy through his power of appointment, his power to propose new programs and budgets, and his power to streamline and rearrange.
Executive Control:
The president can use his power of appointment to place those who are loyal and competent. He can strategically place them where he chooses in top executive positions. He can also use his power of removal from these positions. The president can change reshuffle and reorder his departments to better achieve his purposes. Almost every president reorganizes the White House staff. Restructuring can strengthen accountability, reduce wasteful duplication, and tighten administrative competence and effectiveness. He oversees their daily operations. Reorganizations or appointments are two ways of gaining power over an agency previously protected from presidential influence. The president can have direct command over personnel, programs, and budget over the bureaucracy. The president had the power to propose budgets. Proposals and new regulations and procedures are required to be submitted to the Office of Management and Budget in the Executive Office of the President for approval before it goes to Congress. This is a procedure that gives the White House the opportunity that is aligned with the president’s views and policies. They must formulate policy that meets their own preferences and political needs.
These new political appointees must be personally loyal to the president and fully committed to his policy agenda so that he can succeed. Political appointees in these top executive positions can make or break the administration.
Congressional Control: Congress forms the federal agencies, their programs and assigns the funding to them. It can legislate agencies out of…...

Executive Compensation

...The objective of a properly designed executive compensation package is to attract, retain, and motivate CEOs and senior management. Despite substantial heterogeneity in pay practices across firms, most CEO compensation packages contain five basic components: salary, annual bonus, payouts from long‐term incentive plans, restricted option grants, and restricted stock grants. In addition, CEOs often receive contributions to defined‐benefit pension plans, various perquisites, and, in case of their departure, severance payments It has been seen that the increase in executive compensation has far outweighed the rise of regular employee compensation the objective of this paper is to investigate the pay-for-performance link in executive compensation. In the context of executive compensation, an analysis needs to be undertaken both from an economic as well as a regulatory policy perspective. To provide a holistic understanding both global as well as Indian Organisations are considered for the analysis. From the economic perspective we look into the following • Executive Compensation and Agency Problem • Executive Compensation and Risk Management • The sensitivity of CEO wealth to firm performance • The relation between CEO incentives and firm value • Explaining CEO compensation: Rent extraction or competitive pay? From the regulatory and legal perspective • Regulatory controls as under o SEC o SEBI • Tax Code Changes o Tax Law 162(m) signed in 1993 of the Federal...

Philippines sets dumping duty against Turkish flour Source: www.tribune.net.ph Thursday, 24 April 2014 00:00 The Department of Agriculture (DA) has imposed dumping duty on Turkish wheat flour exports to the Philippines. The dumping duty, which will be in addition to the seven percent regular import duty on flour, is as high as 21.79 percent on hard flour for bread, 39.26 percent on biscuit flour and 35.21 percent on soft flour which is used for pastries and cookies.  DA issued the order on April 21. Lauding the DA action, Ric Pinca, executive director of the Philippine Association of Flour Millers (PAFMIL) said, “the decision made by the DA to impose dumping duty on Turkish flour is pro-Filipino, pro-fair trade and pro-Philippine labor which is in danger of losing their livelihood to Turkish laborers producing flour products  dumped in the Philippines.” Pinca said the Philippine wheat flour milling industry has been in the receiving end of unfair trade from Turkey with its cheap subsidized flour being dumped at much lower prices here.  With the government seeing the truth of dumping behind the veneer of very strong Turkish lobby, the Philippine industry can at last breath a little, to say the least. According to PAFMIL, the local flour milling industry still has to......

To What Extent Does Parliament Control Executive Power?

...parliament control executive power? Executive power is seen as the exclusive body or group of influential and powerful individuals within the government in power. They hold a substantial amount of authority and responsibility and have the ability to enforce legislation, formulate government policies and govern general maintenance. Alongside the PM, the cabinet and all the ministers form an alliance together to form this excusive body of executive power. The Parliament consists of the House of Lords and House of Commons -which include various party representatives. Lord Hailsham stated that the UK has an “elective dictatorship” implying that executive is able to dominate the legislature. It could be argued that parliament does control executive power because parliament has scrutiny features such as Prime Minister's Questions, Ministerial question time and select committees, which all make the government and its executive powers accountable for their decision making. However to some extent it could be argued that parliament does not control executive power effectively, due to the fact that the government naturally has an in built majority within the House of Commons, as well as that the whipping system and the ideology of ‘toeing the party line’ results in the executive powers having the ability to gain a majority of support from the House of Commons. Furthermore the increase in prime-ministerial or even ‘presidential’ government in the UK, with the leader of the executive......

...slip. There is no room for error at this point since the project is behind, however, the complexity of IT items need to be carefully managed. Recommendations for Problem Mitigation Based on the current project status, if the project is on day 76 out of a planned 123 days of project activity and have spent $112K out of a budgeted 173K, then there is a lot of room for financial control and cost management. There needs to be methods in place to confirm and authorize the request of additional hours on an activity especially if that activity is behind schedule. There has been a lot of time spent on the Web-Based Meetings pilot test. This is the tasks that was affected by bad weather causing unexpected delays, also there was work that did not produce successful results. Testing needs to be well planned and it needs to a discussion with the PM to approve testing and activities. Given that we have an actual track record of how long different tasks take, the activity can be more tightly estimated and the duration exactly planned for. This not only helps with cost estimation but also helps with scheduling control. This gives us the opportunity to establish a best practices method. The PM needs to work with the team leaders to implement a best practice review for each task assuring that helps keeps task on schedule and appropriately completed. Given the revised estimates of the remaining 1220 hours of work left on the project, there is a great opportunity to bring in those dates and......

...suppliers and EPCGlobal to generate advance ship notices for supplier shipments based on RFID reads. January 2006: Supposed deadline for the “next 200 suppliers” to begin sending some tagged product to some DCs, though relatively few do in any meaningful way. March 2006: Wal-Mart says it is working on two “proof of concept” pilots for using sensors along with RFID tags to track produce and environmental temperatures as the products move along the supply chain. April 2006: Wal-Mart says it will phase out the use of Gen 1 tags by in favor of Gen 2 by mid-year, saying it will no longer accept the use of Gen 1 tags on the cases and pallets it receives from its suppliers after June 30. April 2006: Linda Dillman leaves as CIO to take an executive role in Human Resources. Rollin Ford, previously head of supply chain and logistics, becomes CIO. Ford subsequently takes a much lower profile approach to RFID. September, 2006: Wal-Mart announces that by January 31, 2007, another 500 of Wal-Mart's 3,900 stores will have RFID readers installed. If it happened, that would bring the total of RFID-enabled Wal-Mart stores up to 1,000. February 2007: The Wall Street Journal runs an article entitled "Wal-Mart's Radio-Tracked Inventory Hits Static." The article says, "Wal-Mart Stores Inc.'s next leap forward in ultra-efficient distribution is showing signs of fizzling," given a lack of internal progress in rolling out the technology and a lack of value for suppliers.

Executive Power

...To what extent does parliament control executive power? Parliament remains the center of debate for MP's and parties, however it's the executive government that has overhauling power of formulating and executing policies. As head of the executive branch of government the Prime enjoys considerable power. The executive would be commonly known to have considerable power but you could argue that parliament places restraints and controls certain aspects of it. Parliament can be considered weak in different ways. One of those is the presence of party loyalty in the commons. MP's are elected and will have a strong mandate to support the party's policies. Defying the party leadership would prove too difficult and could be seen as a betrayal of the mandate. In turn, MP's will feel bound to the mandate made, encouraging them not to challenge the executive and support it's decisions. Another party factor is the overall majority the government has in parliament. The first past the post system guarantees this majority . The conservative party in the current House of Commons has 101 more seats than Labour. This demonstrates the vast majority of Conservative MP's from the 2015 general election. More importantly, for parliament to build momentum against the executive it would be difficult as roughly half the chamber are in the Prime Ministers party. In summary, party loyalty and is a beneficial to the executive's hold of power. However, Parliament does remain effective in......

Executive Compensation

...Executive Compensation: Do you get what you pay for? Some would say that top executives are not overpaid. This side of the argument is based on the premise that top executives are paid well, but not overpaid. Many people see CEO pay packages but do not look further to see that a CEO's pay is not the whole story. What are the factors that might support a high executive compensation package? It is usually the most extreme cases of overpay that hit the press. Proponents of the argument that top executives are not overpaid state that most of the complaints about executive compensation center around extreme cases of overpay, and such cases blind us to the fact that the majority of executives are paid fairly. One example of this is the case of Lee Raymond, former head of Exxon Mobile. When he retired from the company in 2006, the price of gasoline at the pump was high, $3 per gallon, much to the consternation of consumers. Yet Exxon Mobile rewarded Raymond with a record retirement package--a "golden parachute," as it is known--to the tune of $400 million. The combination of exorbitant CEO pay and painfully high gas prices rubbed most observers the wrong way. A similar situation occurred in the case of Robert Nardelli of Home Depot. When Nardelli retired in 2007 with a pay package worth $210 million, the company he headed had just gone through several straight years of relatively poor performance. People wanted to know why the chief executive received such an exceptional payout...
