JULY 25—The Office of Management and Budget has asked each agency to assign an electronic-government leader to a new e-government task force led by Mark Forman, OMB's associate director for information technology and e-government.

OMB director Mitch Daniels said in a July 18 memorandum to the heads of agencies that the task force is being formed in response to disputes regarding the use of the e-government fund. The group's goal will be 'to identify high-payoff e-government opportunities and set in motion a transformation of government around customer needs.'

The task force will hold meetings through the beginning of September to develop plans for collectively addressing IT issues across the government and for efficiently using President Bush's $100 million e-government fund.

The group will try to find ways to improve on four key areas of federal IT, Daniels' memo said: service to individuals, service to businesses, intergovernmental affairs, and internal efficiency and effectiveness.
