Federal Task Force Is Working on an Automated Import/Export System

Attention, importers, exporters, brokers, carriers, and others associated with international trade transactions. A small federal task force working under the Treasury Department is developing an International Trade Data System, an automated import/export system. ITDS will establish one standardized and harmonized data record that will meet the information and regulatory requirements of federal trade agencies. The group has developed a website, International Trade and Transport Advisor that will become a one-stop shop for you.

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 supporting international trade with user-friendly electronic access to comprehensive export and import data.

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.
