Ideas wanted for e-gov business lines

The Bush administration seeks vendor ideas for the next phase of e-government — the line-of-business initiative.

The General Services Administration, working with the Office of Management and Budget, released a request for information on the governmentwide consolidation efforts in three business areas: financial management, human resources and grants management.

Vendors have until May 17 to submit ideas for a common solution and target architecture for the lines of business. The goal is to identify systems, best practices and migration strategies to develop common business processes, according to the RFI. Officials plan to begin the acquisition process in fiscal 2005.

"This will enable the [lines of business] agency managing partners to incorporate strategies, alternatives, and experiences, representing best practices in developing and implementing transformational common solutions and a target enterprise architecture, into business cases for these lines of business in time for the [fiscal] 2006 budget process," the document states.

The other two identified lines of business are case management and federal health architecture.
