THE E-GOVERNMENT ACT OF 2002

The E-Government Act of 2002 (Public Law 107-347) and the federal government’s strategic plan for e-government provide further impetus for e-government initiatives. The law reaffirmed the federal mandate for e-government by codifying the creation of the associate director for IT and e-government in OMB. It also imposed new annual reporting requirements for OMB to inform Congress of progress toward meeting the goals of the act. Recognizing the need to address public concerns about privacy and e-government adoption, the law required agencies to conduct Privacy Impact Assessments to make privacy considerations more explicit in the development of e-government systems.13
