SBA Business Compliance project redone
As it becomes clearer that agencies will not be 100 percent compliant with the Government Paperwork Elimination Act by Oct. 21, the Office of Management and Budget has targeted 75 percent compliance for September 2004.
To help reach that mark, OMB is refocusing the Small Business Administration's Business Compliance One-Stop project-- one of the 25 Quicksilver initiatives-- to reduce the paperwork burden on small businesses through the development of an e-forms application.
OMB also is changing the name of the project to the Business Gateway.
Mark Forman, OMB's administrator for e-government and IT, said small businesses spend too much time on paperwork and that the project's change is in response to the needs of the small business community.
