E-forms group starts pilots to define standards

A public-private team is studying the strengths and weaknesses of several technologies for publishing electronic forms.

E-Forms for E-Government is one of several pilots that include Extensible Markup Language and Web services, Brand L. Niemann said this month at the FedWeb conference in Arlington, Va. Niemann, an Environmental Protection Agency computer scientist, heads the CIO Council's XML Web Services Working Group.

The e-forms group, which first met in March, will recommend a core set of standards for federal use. The 40 participants are designing several online prototypes.

Niemann said the group plans to deliver an interim report next month and a final report in October.
