Resources for helping to recognise and identify, then eliminate or mitigate, government department operational waste?

So, I'm now part of a project within our state government department's business unit that has been tasked with identifying problems. These are problems with process, with operations, with focus, and with waste. We're all about red tape reduction, internally and externally, apparently.
(We're going to be project managing stuff using Agile, too, apparently, for those in-the-know.)
We're not the first government department to pretend we are going to be doing this, so rather than mind-mapping the wheel and acting like we're coming up with new and interesting ideas, I'd like to immediately introduce a bit of efficiency to the whole affair by drawing on work of this nature that has already been done.
I've found a little bit of gear on "Lean Government" that was developed by the US EPA, and it actually looks pretty interesting. I guess I'm just throwing this out there and asking if anybody can recommend any other resources (ideally online) that can help everything along.
