White House updates federal e-gov site

The White House today launched a revamped Web site for e-government projects, organizing information about the 25 Quicksilver initiatives under one portal.

The site, at www.whitehouse.gov/omb/egov, provides details about all the projects, such as brief and in-depth descriptions, status, coming milestones and links to their sites.

The Office of Management and Budget also has posted an events listing and information about the E-Government Act of 2002, the original e-government strategy and other related laws and regulations, such as the Government Paperwork Elimination Act. It also for the first time listed the Quicksilver portfolio managers, their e-mail addresses and phone numbers.

The General Services Administration ran the original version of the site at egov.gov.

The GSA has moved its site to www.estrategy.gov, which continues to provide information about the smart-card and public-key infrastructure work it is doing as well as other e-government information.
