OMB's e-gov group will increase staff

Mark Forman

Mark Forman isn't only gearing up for electronic government, he's staffing up.

Forman, the associate director for IT and e-government at the Office of Management and Budget, said he would hire four managers to oversee 23 development projects OMB task forces have identified as models. The managers will work in the four e-government categories to which each of the projects has been assigned: government-to-government, government-to-business, government-to-citizen, and internal agency effectiveness and efficiency.

The projects will be paid for partly from an anticipated $20 million development fund OMB is seeking for the 2002 budget and partly from accounts in the agencies hosting the projects, Forman said at a meeting of the Bethesda, Md., chapter of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association.

Those now leading the four teams will become a steering committee, Forman said, with the new hires acting as day-to-day project managers. The four current chairs are:

  • For government-to-government: Tony Trenkle, associate deputy commissioner for the office of electronic services at the Social Security Administration


  • For government-to-business: Karen Hogan, acting deputy CIO of the Commerce Department


  • For government-to-citizens: Bernadette Curry, assistant director for e-government at the Treasury Department


  • For internal efficiency and effectiveness: David Temoshok, federal public-key infrastructure policy manager at the General Services Administration.


  • The 23 projects, a final list of which Forman said will be released sometime next week, will be reviewed again for the soundness of their business cases.
