This is the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) seventh annual progress report on implementation of the E-Government Act of 2002 (Pub. L. No. 107-347; Dec. 17, 2002) (the “E-Government Act”) as required by 44 USC 3606. This report describes activities completed in fiscal year (FY) 2009, 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. The 2010 “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
  2. OMB’s FY 2009 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 six sections. Section I outlines agency implementation with OMB priority initiatives for FY 2009 and their intentions to advance these initiatives in FY 2010. Section II is comprised of agency transparency, participation, and collaboration initiatives. Section III describes agency information and information technology efforts to include investment management on the IT Dashboard, TechStat sessions, enterprise architecture (EA) and capital planning, and certain technical requirements of the E-Government Act. Section IV discusses the government’s efforts over the past year to implement electronic government initiatives. Section V describes the operations conducted with the appropriations of the E-Government Fund.

This report, other reports referenced here, and OMB’s prior reports on implementation of the E-Government Act (i.e., for FY 2003 through FY 2008) are available on OMB’s website and have been provided to the Government Printing Office for distribution to Federal Depository Libraries.
