Two administration sites keep feds informed

Two administration sites keep feds informed

The White House and an interagency group have set up two Web sites to keep federal employees better informed. One site supplies White House information, the other is for people needing access to federal disability programs.

The site at www.results.gov outlines monthly progress of President Bush’s five management agenda items, posts contact information for Senate-confirmed appointees and their staffs, and supplies administrative information about ethics, records management and the legislative process.

Each leader of a President’s Management Agenda item—such as e-government or competitive sourcing—has written an introduction for the site. It includes video presentations on ethics from White House chief of staff Andrew Card, and on records management from White House counsel Alberto Gonzales.

An interagency site, at www.disabilityinfo.gov, is a one-stop portal of federal programs for disabled persons and their families, employers and service providers. It has information about civil rights, education, employment, housing, technology, transportation, and public and private organizations. An August executive order directed agencies to collaborate in setting up the site.
