E-Government Initiatives Move Forward

E-Government Initiatives Move Forward

The Office of Management and Budget's list of 22 e-government initiatives includes projects ranging from tax filing for citizens to international trade processing for businesses.

The 22 projects were culled from about 269 projects suggested to OMB and its e-gov task force. OMB has grouped the projects into four categories: government to citizen, government to business, government to government and internal effectiveness and efficiency.

The projects should be deployed in the next 18 to 24 months. Each project has a managing partner or agency that will oversee its development. The initiatives cut across many federal agencies and include partnerships with state and local governments.

The projects and managing partners are:

Government to citizen:

  • USA services - GSA
