Microsoft’s Gov. 2.0 advice


Susie Adams, Microsoft’s federal civilian and IGO chief technology officer, writing at Future Fed, the blog of Microsoft’s federal division, posts five opportunities where federal agencies can implement Gov 2.0 tools in light of the Obama administration’s vision. Briefly, those opportunities include:

* Citizen services must meet the increasing expectations of citizens for interactivity, while increasing responsiveness and access to critical services, saving time and taxpayer dollars in the process. * Citizen engagement includes an opportunity for outreach to, interaction with, and participation of key constituents in an open and collaborative way. * Security-enhanced collaboration to connect staff through security-enhanced portals and to enable the exchange of data online. * Helping secure data to simplify and optimize the identity management infrastructure and create trusted. * Compliance and accountability to meet the mounting pressure to better align an organization’s performance and improve agency accountability to its citizens.

All solid ideas.
