This is OMB’s fourth annual progress report on implementation of the E-Government Act of 2002 (Pub. L. No. 107-347) (the “E-Government Act”) as required by Section 3606 of title 44, United States Code. This report describes activities completed in fiscal year 2006, and is among a series of reports produced by OMB to describe the Administration’s use of E-Government principles to improve government performance and the delivery of information and services to the public.

Most prominent among these other reports are:

  1. Chapter 9 of the President’s Fiscal Year 2008 Budget of the U.S. Government describing how agencies are integrating information technology to enhance services;
  2. The December 2006 report, “Expanding E-Government: Making a Difference for the American People Using Information Technology,” highlighting E-Government accomplishments and setting goals;
  3. The 2007 “Report to Congress on the Benefits of the E-Government Initiatives,” describing the economic value of multi-agency and cross-government E-Government activities; and
  4. OMB’s FY 2006 report, “Federal Information Security Management Act,” describing agency privacy programs, including compliance with section 208 of the E-Government Act of 2002.

This report comprises four sections. Section I describes the government’s efforts over the past year to implement certain technical requirements of the E-Government Act and also describes related activities complementing specific requirements and objectives of the Act. Section II includes examples of internal agency E-Government activities. Section III details use of the E-Government Fund established by Section 3604 of the E-Government Act. Section IV provides links to all reports or policies referenced in this report.

This report, other reports referenced here, and OMB’s prior reports on implementation of the E-Government Act (i.e., for fiscal years 2003 through 2005) are available on OMB’s website and have been provided to the Government Printing Office for distribution to Federal Depository Libraries.5 The reader is encouraged to refer to all of them for a complete picture of past, current, and planned Administration efforts.
