Agencies model GPEA report

GPEA Planning Guide and Model Report

A group of agencies released a model guide on Friday designed to help agencies

develop electronic government plans under the Government Paperwork Elimination

Act.

Under GPEA, agencies must enable citizens to interact with the government

electronically whenever possible. Agencies must comply by October 2003,

but there is a more immediate deadline: Implementation plans are due at

the Office of Management and Budget by Oct. 31.

The Social Security Administration, the General Services Administration

and the federal CIO Council's E-government Committee developed the planning

guide and model report under the direction of OMB to help agencies respond

to next month's deadline.

The {http://www.cio.gov/egov/projects/gpea/model_plan.doc}guide helps

agencies prepare their plans by providing "examples and practical considerations

for agencies in complying with OMB's GPEA guidance and planning instructions."

The guide outlines steps agencies should take in preparing their GPEA

plans, such as identifying candidates for electronic reporting and transactions,

and provides examples, mostly from SSA.
