Need to Enforce Current Law Requiring Federal Agencies to Distribute Material Via GPO

Many Federal entities do not follow Title 44's requirements to distribute their publications via the Federal Depository Library system. This has been an on-going problem transcending which party is in the White House. It is time for the current administration to follow the law and require all Executive Agencies to follow. Other entities, such as the Courts, which are not part of the Executive Department should follow... more »

Improve interagency emergency planning

Commonly, at federal emergency exercises, one finds that some agency representatives have mistaken perceptions of the emergency roles and procedures of other agencies. The national response plan is helpful in that regard, but provides inadequate detail. Potential disconnects should be addressed in the planning process, not during an emergency. There are two ways to address the problem: 1) Allow each federal agency... more »

Develop Coherent Technical Assistance Strategies for States and Communities

In the 1990s, the federal government, in a very rough estimate, was found to spend almost $100 million per year to hire technical assistance consultants to assist communities with the implementation of federal programs. These technical assistance consultants are often engaged to help communities develop and implement public-private collaboration frameworks and public participation strategies as well as other, more technical... more »

Rewrite Congress's Job Description

Economists, bankers, and regulators—all failed to protect us from the financial crisis we’re now facing. And they will again—because their job description does not require them to regularly review and revise the entire framework of financial regulation. But Congress might well succeed where these others have so often failed if it rewrites its own job description to include this task. Recurrent financial crises point... more »

No To Obama's Healthcare Reform

The so called public option insurance will raise cost of private insurance leading to people choosing Government care thinking it will cost less. Yet it has to be payed for and in Countries with Nationalize Healthcare Systems middle class income taxes range from 50% to 60% and their healthcare systems are still broke causing rationed care. I don't think American's want rationed care. Medicare waste $1 to every $3 dollars... more »

Inreach (within-agency collaboration and shared learning)

Inreach, interagency dialog, and outreach have many of the same characteristics. It makes sense to (a) treat these as concentric circles, starting with inreach and working out to the general public or (b) treat these as one. All the principles, ethics, aspirations and implementation tools discussed in this site should be designed for application within the agency as well in agency-agency and agency-public dialogs.... more »

Generate Crosscutting Thematic Bitstreams

We're still addressing problems in the 21st Century with bureaucracies designed in the 1930s. But contemporary issues like Transgenerational Poverty, Environmental Energy, Preventive Wellness, and Early Childcare do not fit neatly into the vertical departmental boxes drawn decades ago. The number of interagency task forces and interdepartmental agreements endeavoring to tackle such issues has mushroomed in recent years,... more »

Create SourceForge.gov or equivalent

Create a central source code repository for ALL government software development projects to be hosted and collaborated on. Agencies could collaborate on the development of software systems. Developers from outside of the government and contractor circles that simply want to "help their country" could also get in on the action. This could potentially facilitate an "IT-AmeriCorp" of sorts. There are plenty of automated... more »

Biden Says 'Everyone Guessed Wrong' on Unemployment Numbers

Read the news today, you will find that our government guessed on or gambled on the economic stimulus would help and create more jobs and get our economy working again. Well today the morons confess they are wrong, they guessed. Let me repeat, they guessed. They and I mean President, congress, and all the other morons out there guessed without doing any homework or putting thought into it. They predicted and without really... more »

Federal Web Technology Managers Council

Patterned on the CIO Council and the Web Content Managers Council, this new organization would address all aspects of the technology and infrastructure requirements that will be necessary for federal agencies to plan, acquire, develop and implement the platforms and software systems required for the fully articulated Open Government Initiative. Members would be representatives of their agency's CIO/CTO and Web Infrastructure... more »

Government version of an Institutional Repository using Knowledge Management techniques

I have often heard, when someone is referring to the US government, that the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. We are still even now, emerging from the Cold War era thinking that keeping secrets, even amongst those individuals who are thought to be on the same side, is the best way to operate. This type of thinking should no longer be enabled. Our world has grown larger due to the advancements... more »
