CIOs Launch Business Portal

CIOs Launch Business Portal

The federal Chief Information Officers Council and the National Association of State CIOs are sponsoring a project to develop a proof of concept for a small business registration portal. It will allow small businesses to electronically register and obtain licenses and permits from federal, state and local governments.

The $100,000 prototype is being developed by Vector Research Inc. of Annandale, Va. The project is the first in what the CIO Council said will be a series of portals that will pull together related sites.

Other portals under development include sites for volunteers, Social Security recipients, the scientific community, grant applications, people with low incomes and the sales of federally owned homes.
