In February, the National Academy of Public Administration launched the Collaboration Project, a campaign to increase awareness and adoption of collaborative technologies in government. As part of this initiative, the Academy has been asked to host an online discussion on the future of government services. And we’re reaching out to the GovLoop community to help start that discussion!
The last decade has seen major changes, with initiatives like e-Government revolutionizing government’s ability to serve citizens and work together to solve problems. The next administration will encounter an environment in which these challenges are greater than ever — but also one in which collaborative tools like wikis, blogs, and mashups represent an unprecedented opportunity to pull new voices and more data into the governance process.
Because GovLoop is at the intersection of federal government and collaborative technologies, we’re asking for your help in framing the question that will form the basis for this online dialogue. We want to have a conversation about what changes will take place over the next five years with respect to the mission of government, citizen expectations, the use of technology, and other critical topics. Your feedback here on GovLoop will will shape a planned nationwide, online dialogue on the future of government.
The GovLoop Forum has a few starter threads to help kick things off, and we hope they’ll help generate a rich conversation about the future of government services during the next administration.
