OMB: Website Can Be Boon or Bust
OMB is developing a new web site to launch later this summer. The stated intention is to clarify government expenditures and assets. Currently, many systems within the government are not linked, in particular among the military, and the plan is to connect all systems together, and make the information web accessible. The positive side is that all the information will be grouped together, and theoretically organized into a coherent ‘summary’. The negative side is that this is a process-driven protocol, and individual agencies may interpret the results differently.
According to C.T.O. Norman Lorentz, “Agencies will be able to access their architectures and update them as needed through this website.”
"Agencies must identify the outcomes based on the component architecture,” Lorentz said.
