Fairfax County (VA) Executive Robert O'Neill and Linda Thompson, Special Secretary for Children and Families from Maryland's Governor's Office, joined Morley Winograd, NPR Director and Vice President Gore's Senior Policy Advisor, to launch a new one-stop web site for state and local government employees. The three officials connected (not cut) ribbons to open the US State & Local Gateway on January 23, 1998 in Washington, DC. The site features federal information organized by topic, not agency, and is already earning kudos from state and local workers. "You've made it so easy for us," Thompson said.

Winograd presented Vice President Gore's Hammer Awards to more than 50 people--federal employees from 17 agencies and their partners from seven associations representing state and local government workers. The Alliance for Redesigning Government at the National Academy for Public Administration sponsored a reception to celebrate the achievement. The Department of Housing and Urban Development hosts the Gateway site. The interagency initiative is sponsored by the National Partnership for Reinventing Government (formerly the National Performance Review) and the Intergovernmental Enterprise Panel of the Government Information Technology Services Board.
