Where the action is

Bush administration officials laid out the vision for each line of business and some of their expectations for e-government vendors. Those expectations include:

The financial management solution should improve business performance while ensuring integrity in accountability and financial controls. It will provide for the standardization of business processes and seamless data exchange among agencies. Vendors should outline where the solution will be hosted and what business processes will be provided.

The grants management solution should improve customer access to grant opportunities, improve decision-making and increase the efficiency of post-award actions. The solution should make the process transparent to the public and enhance reporting capabilities.

The human relations management solution should provide a common, standardized human resource information system to improve government workforce management. Vendors should present a shared services solution that is scalable, portable and interoperable.
