The Federal CIO Council plans to immediately tackle a detailed list of
digital government initiatives, many of which are intergovernmental.
The list is not a long-term agenda or an integrated agenda — "It's merely
listing of things that would get us started," said Jim Flyzik, deputy
assistant secretary for information systems and chief information officer
the Treasury Department.
Flyzik laid out the agenda at the first joint meeting of the Federal CIO
Council and the National Association of State Information Resource
Executives (NASIRE) during last week's Virtual Government 2000
Items on the agenda include:
* Expanding the number of items people can purchase online, such as
government surplus items.
* Consolidating one-stop-shopping portals for key functions such as export
and import activities.
* Publishing annual data on the number of hits to the top 1,000 federal,
state and local World Wide Web sites.
* Endorsing the SafeCities Network designed to reduce gun violence.
* Supporting the WebGov project to encourage the use of common navigational
methodologies between federal and state Web sites.
* Working with federal, state and local public safety organizations to
develop an interoperable radio system to allow joint communications
during the 2002 Olympics.
