E-gov scores drop

"Agencies need to emphasize the importance of e-government initiatives with Congress, said Clay Johnson, the Office of Management and Budget's deputy director for management.

On the Executive Branch Management Scorecard for the second quarter of fiscal 2006, nine agencies' scores were downgraded for their progress in instituting e-government initiatives.

OMB said Congress is partly to blame for the dropping grades, which reflect agencies' difficulty in getting congressional approval for the funding necessary to cover the costs of e-government services."
