We're Looking for Stories

Federal workers are doing amazing things to deliver government services electronically. Access America E-Gov E-Zine wants to tell these stories.

We are looking for stories about federal agencies, or multi-agency partnerships, that are addressing the information technology needs of our Nation's criminal justice community.

These stories can be short, as in a "byte" of about 150 words, or they can be longer feature stories. Write feature stories in plain language with quotes from customers who experience the service electronically and quotes from federal employees and their partners who deliver the service.

Include a contact person with phone number and email address. Send your stories to or If you need more information, call Pat Wood, National Partnership for Reinventing Government, (202) 694-0063. Please pass this request along to others who may be interested.
