CIO Council rolls out first take on e-gov best practices

The CIO Council last week laid the foundation for an e-government knowledge base. “We wanted to do something in real time and create a set of best practices that would be helpful immediately,” said Debra Stouffer, co-chairwoman of the CIO Council’s Best Practices Committee.

White papers by industry and government teams outlined the issues, success factors and recommendations for the Business Compliance One-Stop and the Geospatial One-Stop projects. The teams, made up of government officials and members of the Industry Advisory Council, plan to issue similar reports for all 24 e-government initiatives under the Office of Management and Budget’s sponsorship [see story at www.gcn.com/21_4/news/17995-1.html].

“We are building a knowledge base that is important because it is applicable across the board for all e-gov projects and agencies,” Stouffer said.

The council released the best-practices documents, which can be found online at cio.gov, at an Association for Federal IRM event in Washington.

“We need to change the way government brings in best practices,” said Mark Forman, associate director of OMB for IT and e-government. “We used to read it in a magazine and say, ‘We need to do this.’ But we have to work faster, and we are getting there. Part of it is our ability to bring best practices into government like the way we did with these.”
