Our mission

Free Government Information (FGI) is a place for initiating dialogue and building consensus among the various players (libraries, government agencies, non-profit organizations, researchers, journalists, etc.) who have a stake in the preservation of and perpetual free access to government information. FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

A Peek behind the scenes of e-government

FCW reports that “Sixteen agencies complied with the Office of Management and Budget’s request to post their information technology business cases online.”

Unfortunately, there will, according to the OMB, be no central Web portal where the public can find links to the business cases. The articles says that “OMB and agencies have been reluctant to share business cases in the past and would issue them only when someone filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.” And an executive vice president at a market research firm is quoted as saying that this was a problem because “…every agency interprets FOIA laws differently.”

Fortunately, Sabrina Pacifici has provided links to the buisiness plans for each agency!

There is fascinating information in these plans on how agencies view their own e-government initiatives.
