Federal Web Shortcomings in Plain Site
Posted by Ann All Sep 25, 2009 11:35:28 AM
When I wrote about federal CIO Vivek Kundra earlier this week, I mentioned the Web sites launched on Kundra’s watch. His detractors knock the sites for their costs, while his supporters laud the introduction of the sites during Kundra’s six months on the job a major accomplishment, especially considering the government’s spotty record on past IT projects.
But concerns about the sites go beyond cost. Seth Grimes, writing on Intelligent Enterprise, calls the USASpending.gov Web site “a travesty, almost a parody of a government transparency site.”
