SEC. 2. <<NOTE: 44 USC 3601 note.>> FINDINGS AND PURPOSES.
(a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
(1) The use of computers and the Internet is rapidly
transforming societal interactions and the relationships among
citizens, private businesses, and the Government.
(2) The Federal Government has had uneven success in
applying advances in information technology to enhance
governmental functions and services, achieve more efficient
performance, increase access to Government information, and
increase citizen participation in Government.
(3) Most Internet-based services of the Federal Government
are developed and presented separately, according to the
jurisdictional boundaries of an individual department or agency,
rather than being integrated cooperatively according to function
(4) Internet-based Government services involving interagency
cooperation are especially difficult to develop and promote, in
part because of a lack of sufficient funding mechanisms to
support such interagency cooperation.
(5) Electronic Government has its impact through improved
Government performance and outcomes within and across agencies.
(6) Electronic Government is a critical element in the
management of Government, to be implemented as part of a
management framework that also addresses finance, procurement,
human capital, and other challenges to improve the performance
(7) To take full advantage of the improved Government
performance that can be achieved through the use of Internet-
based technology requires strong leadership, better
organization, improved interagency collaboration, and more
focused oversight of agency compliance with statutes related to
information resource management.
(b) Purposes.--The purposes of this Act are the following:
(1) To provide effective leadership of Federal Government
efforts to develop and promote electronic Government services
and processes by establishing an Administrator of a new Office
of Electronic Government within the Office of Management and
[[Page 116 STAT. 2901]]
(2) To promote use of the Internet and other information
technologies to provide increased opportunities for citizen
participation in Government.
(3) To promote interagency collaboration in providing
electronic Government services, where this collaboration would
improve the service to citizens by integrating related
functions, and in the use of internal electronic Government
processes, where this collaboration would improve the efficiency
and effectiveness of the processes.
(4) To improve the ability of the Government to achieve
agency missions and program performance goals.
(5) To promote the use of the Internet and emerging
technologies within and across Government agencies to provide
citizen-centric Government information and services.
(6) To reduce costs and burdens for businesses and other
(7) To promote better informed decisionmaking by policy
(8) To promote access to high quality Government information
and services across multiple channels.
(9) To make the Federal Government more transparent and
(10) To transform agency operations by utilizing, where
appropriate, best practices from public and private sector
(11) To provide enhanced access to Government information
and services in a manner consistent with laws regarding
protection of personal privacy, national security, records
retention, access for persons with disabilities, and other
