OPM and FEMA premiere their e-gov Web sites

The Office of Personnel Management and the Federal Emergency Management Agency last month launched Web sites for their Quicksilver e-government projects.

FEMA director Joe M. Allbaugh said the current version of DisasterHelp is a pilot that the agency will use to see how it can 'maximize the availability of information to first responders.'

The site provides links to information about eight kinds of disasters, including fires, tornadoes, earthquakes, floods and terrorist attacks. There are also links to resources such as the Red Cross and tools to let visitors learn about disaster information in every state and U.S. territory.

The OPM site, at apps.opm.gov/egov, provides overviews of the E-Clearance, E-Payroll, Enterprise Human Resources Initiative, E-Training and Recruitment One-Stop projects.

For each project, OPM also lists its partner agencies, contact information for project leaders,
and the vision and goals of the project.
