Report Highlights 3rd Anniversary of the E-Government Act
Marking the third anniversary of the E-Government Act of 2002, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) released a report today that highlights the results and future path of the Administration’s goal of Expanding Electronic Government. The report identifies recent successes in improving service delivery and enhancing the role of enterprise architecture, and outlines next year’s goals to be accomplished as part of the President’s Management Agenda.
“The E-government initiative is making the Federal government more efficient and effective, and is improving program results. By setting high goals and working closely with agencies, we are delivering better value for taxpayers,” said Clay Johnson III, Deputy Director for Management for OMB.
The report outlines specific goals for the federal government in FY2006 including:
- Acceptable Business Cases: 90 percent of agencies with acceptable business cases for all of their systems (goal was 75 percent for FY2005);
- Earned Value Management: at least 50 percent (13) of agencies managing their IT portfolio in accordance with the standard and averaging 10 percent of cost, schedule and performance;
- Cyber Security: 90 percent of all IT systems properly secured (certified and accredited), including the Inspector General’s verification of the effectiveness of the department’s or agency’s IT security remediation process; and
- Human Capital: 50 percent of the agencies (13) with no IT skill gaps.
