JAN. 24—The Chief Information Officers Council this week launched an online database that for the first time makes available a systematic catalogue of federal electronic-government initiatives.

The Inventory of Electronic Government Initiatives, at, gives information on more than 1,300 programs at agencies and departments across the government.

Users can search the database by agency, type of program, transaction or customer, method of distribution, and key word or phrase, and then view detailed descriptions of each program.

The database, which is hosted by the General Services Administration's Office of Intergovernmental Solutions, has been in the works since last summer, when the council began collecting information about current e-government programs by sending questionnaires to all federal CIOs.
