The E-Gov Act at 10: A Discussion of the Past, Present and Future of Federal E-Government

December 17, 2012
Reflection on the history of e-government, its current state, and how it can be improved over the next ten years.

On December 17, 2002, Congress passed the E-Government Act to create a framework for federal agencies to better deliver services to citizens using IT and the Internet. Since then federal agencies have invested billions of dollars in IT systems to modernize government services, improve productivity, and make government more open. But along with these huge successes, these investments have also brought challenges including cybersecurity threats, privacy concerns, and projects that have gone over budget. Join us on the ten year anniversary of the E-Government Act for a panel discussion with some of the leaders who have helped create and shape e-government over the past decade. They will reflect on the history of e-government, its current state, and how e-government can be improved over the next ten years.
