E-gov progress is slight on new OMB scorecard

The Office of Management and Budget’s latest scorecard for the President’s Management Agenda, covering January through March, shows that only two agencies improved their e-government scores since the last ratings in December. The State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development moved to yellow from red.

Overall, agencies improved with three green scores in competitive sourcing and one in human capital. There were 61 red, 57 yellow and 12 green scores, making it the first time the scorecard is not predominantly red.

“Because we are results-oriented, we have programs large and small with clear definitions of success, detailed action plans for getting there and a clear understanding of who is being held accountable for the results,” said Clay Johnson, OMB’s deputy director for management. “We also have programs rated ‘results not demonstrated,’ which we are committed to making successful, because that is what results-oriented organizations do.”
