What is government information?

The Electronic Records Policy Working Group wants help in defining government information, the barriers to effective management of online information and guidance tools for federal agencies.

Led by the National Archives and Records Administration, the group has asked agencies, vendors and other interested parties to comment on the three areas by April 5. The request for comments appears in today's Federal Register.

After holding focus groups, the NARA group will make recommendations to the Interagency Committee on Government Information that incorporates findings based on the focus group meeting and the comments. The committee is helping develop the framework for the Office of Management and Budget's information policy and electronic records guidance.

The working group will hold a public meeting in Washington March 30.
