E-Gov Progress Sluggish, Says OMB
Even after an increased focus on the issue from the administration, a new OMB report says just one of 26 federal agencies has made any progress in their e-government efforts since last December. The agency’s ‘scorecard’ also notes two agencies, Housing and Urban Development and Veterans Affairs, actually digressed in their efforts to meet stated e-government goals.
OMB officials, however, remain confident.
“Because we are results oriented we have programs large and small with clear definitions of success, detailed action plans for getting there, and a clear understanding of who is being held accountable for the results,” said Clay Johnson, OMB’s deputy director for management. “We also have programs rated ‘results not demonstrated,’ which we are committed to making successful, because that is what results oriented organizations do.”
