Leveraging the power of citizen engagement to dramatically improve customer service, agency focus and cost efficiency.
Looking to name our new website
June 7, 2010 at 7:53 pm #102404
GSA’s Office of Citizen Services and Communications and Innovative Technologies is in the process of consolidating several websites (citizen services.gov, web content.gov and citizenapps.gov). We want to name for site intuitively, something easy to remember, while at the same time making clear we are looking to blend service delivery with participation and problem solving. We want citizens to take a more active role in solving their own problems as well as helping solve large more national/global problems they have an interest in.
Any suggestions you might have for a name for the site would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Lisa – we helped OPM do a similar naming project using our Ideas.GovLoop.com site:
Why don’t we do the same for you? We’d be happy to set it up and promote it for you!

That is a great idea. Let me coordinate through a couple folks and I will get back to you. Thanks.

Hmm….let me think. Kind of tricky..
Maybe like engage.gov

You should call the potential users to suggest a name for the site and offer a premium to the winner. The choice mechanism should be in the own site. This will attract the interest of the users to the site and will certainly finish in a cool name. You can achieve the goal and do good marketing for the site.

These are great ideas. Thank you. We are in the early stages of planning and your suggestions will help as we proceed. I will come back in a month or so and update you on our progress, give more context, and ask for feedback in a more structured way (perhaps even a contest as Andy suggested). If new ideas come to you please post them. I will keep checking back.

I like Rafael’s suggestion of holding a contest for citizens (the customers of this site) to recommend and vote on a name. Other ideas might include:

The acronym comes out to OCSCIT so maybe a play on that acronym.
Maybe oxsit.gov? hehe

Challenge.gov might not be appropriate, since it is for citizens and government. I think what our SWAT team is doing is more government to government, so maybe the contest should be the same. Like Andrew K.’s idea above.
