For Gwendolyn Sykes, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's chief financial officer, e-government is personal -as personal as a paycheck.
Sykes says she "really, really likes the [e-government] initiatives because they make my tax dollar go further." And as a single woman with no children, Sykes sees a lot of her dollars go toward taxes every month.
Take E-Payroll, one of the 25 e-government initiatives. Sykes likes seeing E-Payroll's highly tangible benefits. Instead of the federal government using 26 pay systems, E-Payroll has consolidated them into four service providers. "It's kind of like Costco," Sykes said. "You're buying in bulk."
