OMB models its site redesign on FirstGov portal

Keeping in line with the redesign of the FirstGov portal, the Office of Management and Budget has revamped its Web site applying the same three-clicks-to-service approach.

OMB yesterday launched its new site at

The site—also modeled after the White House’s home page—added navigation tools down the left side to ease and speed sifting through documents. Users can browse through subject areas such as the president’s 2003 budget proposal and agency information directly instead of having to click through several layers.

OMB also added features such as The Wastebasket, where visitors can e-mail examples of mismanagement or government waste, and Feedback and Forth, where the public can submit opinions directly to OMB.

The front page now offers the latest media advisories and administration policy announcements, as well as links to information about the President’s Management Agenda and agencies’ scorecards.
