OMB: Contractor for E-Gov Validation Click to learn more.
OMB is hiring an outside contractor to ensure that all 25 e-government projects comply with federal laws and regulations. This is the second contract OMB has recently awarded, having hired a marketing plan developer last month for 10 initiatives.
"Agencies will know what they will be getting for their money," said Karen Evans, OMB's administrator for e-government and IT. "There may be a basic operation and maintenance fee every agency involved in the project will pay, and then there may be a premium charge to agencies that want service above and beyond the basic services. It is like basic cable and premium cable."
"We will determine what gaps, if any, each project has, and we will fill them," said Evans.
