What are some good examples of portals that discover, steward, and present content from across organizations? Bonus points for those that have had to pull themselves (and every other agency involved) up by the bootstraps to do so.
To provide a bit of context: our site (http://www.ebenefits.va.gov) aims be a self-service, one-stop-shop for both general and personal information in a particular domain. The public-facing side is a catalog of links to resources. The logged-in site adds applets that display personal information (e.g. on the user’s military service, medical benefits status, etc). The site doesn’t own content or functionality, it’s a platform for presenting content from across agencies. So, necessarily, it’s also an agent for change in getting government agencies to play together in standard ways so their functionality can be presented through the portal.
I’d really like to hear about other examples, government or otherwise.

Stacy: Are you in touch with Curtis Turner at GovBenefits? He’s pretty new to GovLoop, but you can find him here at: https://www.govloop.com/profile/CurtisWTurner He has done a great job with GovBenefits. DisabilityInfo is another example. Bob Goldstraw is a good contact there. https://www.govloop.com/profile/BobGoldstraw
I hope this is helpful!
