Council for Electronic Government Announces Scholarship ProgramPresident Clinton has directed the Office of Management and Budget to issue a regulation, (March 1999) as part of the fiscal 1999 omnibus appropriations bill, that all government agencies must offer services electronically within 3 ½ years. With this mandate in place, Government agencies must acquire as much information on Electronic Government as possible and be well on the road to implementing the solutions in the near future.
The Council for Electronic Government believes the upcoming E-Gov 99 Conference will be the catalyst that many of these agencies will use to learn about the options that are available to them to resolve their Electronic Government demands.
E-Gov 99 is being held at the Washington Convention Center, Washington DC, June 28 through July 1, 1999.
The conference features 16 tutorials and 60 conference sessions, which are led by more than 200 government and industry information technology leaders.
I would like to draw your attention to the many free educational programs offered to government professionals especially our 6 keynote speakers:
In appreciation of your support we are requesting you to nominate a staff member to receive a scholarship to attend the E-Gov 99 conference.
Please email and tell us how many conference brochures you will need or who we can contact within your agency for this purpose, don't forget to nominate a staff member for the scholarship to attend E-Gov 99. If you have questions contact Eric at 703-471-8520 ext. 208.
