OMB reads business cases for next wave of e-gov

The Office of Management and Budget is lining up support from the top for its next wave of e-government projects. Officials said they will brief the President’s Management Council twice over the next two weeks with their plans to address six areas of redundancy: financial management, human resources, data and statistical development, public health information, criminal investigations and public-health monitoring.

“We have put together six analysis teams to identify consolidation opportunities that will close the performance gaps,” said Norman Lorentz, OMB’s chief technology officer, at an Enterprise Architecture Conference sponsored by Federal Sources Inc. of McLean, Va., and Potomac Forum Ltd. of Potomac, Md. “We met with the E-Government subcommittee, and they suggested we take our plan to the full committee.”

The six analysis teams will identify the lines of business, work out a parternship with the CIO and chief financial officers councils and gain commitments from every agency that has an interest in the line of business being studied. Then the teams will develop interim business cases to reduce the number of duplicated projects, Lorentz said. OMB will recommend to the management council that the consolidation work begin in October, at the start of fiscal 2004.

The analysis teams are made up of agency officials, CIOs, solution architects and program managers, Lorentz said.
