President Donald Trump has shrunk the size of an office created by President Barack Obama to speed up federal technology, a new report says.
Known as 18F, the unit within the General Services Administration has fewer than half the 300 workers it had 18 months ago, according to Fedscoop, a website that tracks tech news in government.
The reported 18F attrition rate during the government's last fiscal year, which ended in September, outpaced that of the federal payroll as a whole, other figures show.
According to a report last month from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, the federal government employed 2.088 million workers on Sept. 30, 2017, down slightly from 2.097 million a year earlier.
Obama created 18F after website problems slowed initial sign-ups for the Affordable Care Act. The office was tasked with getting government departments to adopt more user-friendly technologies.
Since then, though, other efforts have sprung up outside of government to help improve American's access to online services.
One, called Code for America, has implemented technology-improvement projects that it says have reduced the average time to fill out applications for some federal and state services.
