E-Government Funding Lacks Congressional Support

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on October 24, 2003

Federal Computer Week reports on the continued lack of support for funding e-government initiatives, as the Senate approved a paltry $5 million of the $45 million requested by the President for Fiscal 2004. According to the OMB’s Statement of Administration Policy:

  • “As has been demonstrated by successes from the modest $5 million invested in each of the last two years (including e-Rulemaking, recreation.gov, e-Authentication, geodata.gov, e-Training and firstgov.gov), the e-gov fund can bring significant improvements across agencies while reducing the need for each agency to ‘reinvent the IT wheel.”
