E-GOVERNMENT ACT OF 2002

In December 2002, the President signed the E-Government Act of 2002 into law (P.L. 107-347). The legislation formalizes a structure to support E-Government efforts across the Federal government. Highlights of the legislation include—

  • Establishment of an Office of Electronic Government within OMB with an administrator appointed by the President
  • Establishment of the CIO Council, an inter- agency forum for sharing IT best practices
  • Establishment an E-Government fund of $345 million for Fiscal Years (FY) 2003 through 2006
  • Authorization for the General Services Administration (GSA) to develop a framework for electronic signatures
  • Authorization of an employee exchange program between public and private sector organizations.

The E-Government Act of 2002 supports DOL’s efforts to move forward with its E-Government activities.
