More than half of the 26 departments Office of Management and Budget (OMB) evaluated showed mixed results in reaching e-Government goals on the President's Management Agenda.
OMB evaluates agencies' current status and overall progress on President Bush's five management priorities: workforce, competitive sourcing, financial performance, e-Government, and budget and performance integration. OMB began tracking executive branch agencies' scores in 2002.
The score card for the first quarter of fiscal 2006, released Feb. 2, shows that eight departments moved from red to yellow or from yellow to green for their e-Government initiatives, while 16 departments had mixed results. Six agencies scored green on e-Government, compared with only four on the previous quarter's score card.
A green score is the top rating an agency can receive. It means that it is implementing its initiatives as planned. Yellow shows slippage or the need for other adjustments to achieve the objectives in a timely manner. Red means that an initiative is in serious jeopardy.
