If you’re a bureaucracy junkie, the Office of Management and Budget has a cool toy for you.
Performance.gov is a Web site OMB plans to launch at midday Thursday. It allows users to track the progress, or lack of it, federal agencies are making in a number of areas. Actually much more than a toy for geeks, it can be an important means of holding the administration accountable on its plans to make the government more user-friendly.
The site has several areas of focus — including acquisition, financial management, technology, performance improvement, customer service and human resources.
