Online catalog will hold all federal forms

A key component of the Business Gateway project, the eForms Catalog, will compile all federal forms into an online collection, according to officials working on the project.

The General Services Administration, which is working with the Small Business Administration on the Quicksilver e-government project, has awarded a $1.8 million, two-year contract to Sytel Inc. of Bethesda, Md., to develop the catalog.

GSA is working on the eForms Catalog, while SBA develops the portal architecture.

The first step will be to list every government form for businesses and citizens'about 7,100 in all'and consolidate them, said Keith Thurston, GSA's assistant deputy associate administrator for e-government and technology.

The development work will have three phases. In Phase 1, Sytel over the next six months will develop a basic portal and catalog, and agencies will populate it with forms. Next, developers will build an engine for filing forms electronically. In Phase 3, the project team will add other services.

Users also will be able to search for forms grouped by category or by agency.
