JULY 10—While the Clinton administration works on its governmentwide Web portal, FirstGov.gov, the National Partnership for Reinventing Government has launched a third Web site that targets a specific audience: workers.

The Web site, www.workers.gov, makes available more than 1,000 federal, state and local government resources.

"We are working hard to bring consolidated customer service to citizens through the Internet and provide the information workers want to have in the new digital economy," Vice President Al Gore said. "Workers.gov is a unique gateway into a universe of resources, putting government at the fingertips of American workers."

The site has nine categories: jobs, learning, family and health, housing and transportation, rights and protections, disabilities resources, money management, citizenship, and recreation and travel. It is the third to bring together agency services for a particular audience; the other sites are www.students.gov and www.seniors.gov [see story at www.gcn.com/archives/gcn/1999/April5/11.htm].
