On today’s program for Monday April 30th, 2012:

The agency has a new IT strategy -- we’ll hear about the agency’s new  IT Transformative Initiative with Deputy Assistant Secretary for Technology, Information and Business Services -- Andrew Jackson.
  • Making the Federal Register easier to use and track with a new feature -- you learn about the My Federal Register with one of the founders -- Bob Burbach.
  • The last three years have been especially hard on small business. But the SBA has some new apps and e-learning courses out to help. You’ll get a preview from Michael Chodos the associate administrator for Entrepreneurial Development at the SBA
