OMB sets plan to review all 25 e-gov projects

By the end of the month, the Office of Management and Budget plans to hire a contractor to make sure all 25 e-government projects comply with federal laws and regulations.

“We will determine what gaps, if any, each project has and we will fill them,” said Karen Evans, OMB’s administrator for e-government and IT.

The contract for independent verification and validation services will be awarded by the General Services Administration to a Federal Supply Service schedule contractor. It will be a one-year, fixed-price agreement.

The contractor will assess all the Quicksilver initiatives to ensure they meet security, privacy, accessibility and enterprise architecture standards. The contract will be flexible enough to allow OMB to delve deeper into a specific area or project, Evans said.
