New York Names Wish List of Web Services

By William Welsh, Staff Writer

NOV. 21?The state of New York has identified the first 75 services it wants to bring online to kick off a statewide plan for electronic government.

The top 75 list includes electronic procurement for many large agencies and multiple services for the departments of Tax & Finance and Motor Vehicles.

The state currently provides online state income tax filing and vehicle registration.

Last June, New York Gov. George Pataki (R) issued a mandate to state agencies to identify those services that eventually might be brought online. The top 75 list was drawn from a list of more than 500 possible services identified by state officials.

The list will be updated on a quarterly basis, said James Natoli, New York's director of state operations and chairman of the Office for Technology, who is spearheading the initiative.

"This is a very fast process that has gone from zero to 60 miles per hour," said Natoli, of the plan's momentum since it first took shape last summer.

The Office for Technology has established four working groups comprised of state, local and private-sector officials to help it address the business, legal, policy and technical issues associated with the shift from traditional to online services, said Natoli.

More than 100 technology companies sent representatives to an e-commerce briefing that followed the unveiling of the plan last summer, including American Management Systems Inc., Fairfax, Va.; Deloitte Consulting, New York; Electronic Data Systems Corp., Plano, Texas; KPMG Consulting, McLean, Va.; and Unisys Corp., Blue Bell, Pa.
