Agencies off GPEA pace

Agencies' latest reports on their e-government efforts indicate that only 45 percent are expected to meet an October 2003 deadline for enabling citizens to conduct government transactions online.

Of the other 55 percent, just over half "have a reasonable argument for not making the 2003 deadline" set by the 1999 Government Paperwork Elimination Act, said Mitchell Daniels Jr., director of the Office of Management and Budget. "Upon evaluating specific agency plans for complying with GPEA, it is clear some agencies are not prepared," Daniels said, testifying before the House Government Reform Committee June 21.

OMB will be training its personnel to better understand what to look for in agencies' GPEA reports and how to work with agencies to improve their strategies, Daniels said.
