OMB issues guiding principles on electronic government
Agencies will offer all government services electronically within 31/2 years, or
they will have to answer to the Office of Management and Budget.
That is the gist of a draft OMB regulation issued this month to help agencies implement
the Government Paperwork Elimination Act, which was included as part of the fiscal 1999
omnibus appropriations bill [GCN, Oct. 26, 1998, Page 1]. Agencies must implement GPEA by October 2003.
The administrations policy pronouncements dovetail with General Services
Administration efforts to create a governmentwide digital certificate service through the
Access Certificates for Electronic Services program (see story, Page 6).
