E-Gov Act Report Highlights Results
Washington, DC - Today, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) submitted to Congress its annual E-Government Report on the government-wide progress of implementation of the E-Government Act of 2002.
The report describes the government’s activities completed in Fiscal Year 2006 to improve public access to information, ensure accessibility for people with disabilities, coordinate the use of technology to enhance crisis management, improve agency disclosure of information, and develop a robust information technology workforce.
The report also describes how agencies are using their various information activities to not only improve access to information while minimizing costs, but to also ensure the information is useful to citizens.
“During FY2006, E-Government activities continued to grow with services improving and being used in greater numbers by agencies, business, and the public,” said OMB E-Gov Administrator Karen Evans. “As this report details, agencies are meeting the goals established in the E-Gov Act of 2002. E-Government is good government, and we will continue to look for ways we can improve and expand on these important services to the public.”
The annual E-Government report is available on OMB’s web site www.omb.gov.
