- The internet doesn’t just happen! Does he think that gas magically appears in his car’s gas tank?!
- It’s obvious that NTIS reports are critical as agencies are paying “millions of dollars” for the NTIS service.
- NTIS operates on a cost-recovery basis because CONGRESS created it that way.
Rather than “wasting $$” by having NTIS charge agencies and the public for reports (some of which are in copyright!!), why doesn’t Congress *fund* NTIS so that they can serve agencies AND the public for free?! Why doesn’t the Obama administration add NTIS to the OSTP directive on public access to federally funded research? The directive applies to agencies with over $100 million in R&D expenditures so it’d be easy to simply add NTIS, OSTI and other .gov information providers to the directive.
As Gary noted yesterday, Performance.gov is now online.
- Performance.gov goes live after lengthy preparations, By Charles S. Clark, NextGov (08/25/2011).
The long-anticipated and many-times-delayed central federal website Performance.gov went live Thursday morning, providing a new dashboard through which the general public can track spending, cost-cutting and progress in hiring agency by agency.
…Peformance.gov links to related dashboard sites at USAspending.gov, Data.gov, Whitehouse.gov, Recovery.gov and USA.gov. The new site also invites feedback to improve usability.
