OMB Tests New E-Government Program
OMB plans to create a portal to allow certain governmental transactions to take place online. The OMB program, part of the “Integrated Acquisition Environment E-Government project,” is currently being tested by five agencies. OMB plans a full launch of the portal next July.
”“We have established two basic transactions with the system,” (OMB’s portal project director Janet) Allen said. “The first is the electronic transfer of the order and bill between the buyer and seller. The second is the disbursement of money from the agency buyer to the seller through the Treasury Department.””
