I had a chance to see the Demo at the DOT Atrium yesterday for a brief moment. It was just fantastic. The system looks pretty awesome and was thoroughly impressed with the design/UI. Unfortunately, I couldn’t personally experience the system from the comfort of my desk because we were told that at this point contractors like myself (even those with USDOT e-mail addresses) are not allowed on the system.
Given the great value and the success this tool has already enjoyed, I’m curious to know if there are plans to open up the access to contractors and other agency personnel (such as FEMA, DHS, etc) working with Department on various cross-cutting issues/projects?
A couple of other related questions: Can this same tool be leveraged to gain stakeholder input for a Program Advisory Committee that is advising the U.S.DOT? If yes, who would be the point person that the Director of the Program should approach for requesting to use this tool?
