>Purpose: To explore the Potential and Realities of Creating Public
>Information Environments that Strengthen Citizen-Government Relationships.
>How can the openness and freedom that characterizes sound public
>information environments, become a stabilizing fulcrum as new contractual
>social interactions (activities of exchange, payment, evaluation and
>institutional advancement) are created to reflect intergovernmental
>priorities?  How will citizen-centered performance measurements emerge from
>this multi-stakeholder, multi-jurisdictional process?  How can the
>principles of user-centered design guide progress?  How can emerging
>technologies like XML/RDF standards and Human Markup Language improve
>collaboration around problem-centered, intergovernmental scenarios?  How
>can the collective understanding that emerges contribute to broad adoption
>of the Federal Enterprise Architecture?  What broad, longitudinal measures
>are researchers using today to evaluate the conditions that facilitate
>interaction and participation among citizens and their governments,
>The President's Management Agenda (PMA) requires all federal agencies to
>transform the roles and relationships among people, processes, and
>technology in order to become a citizen-centered government.  The PMA
>emphasizes bringing value and results to citizens, businesses, and
>government workers by "reducing the burden" and producing measurable
>The Federal Enterprise Architecture is emerging as an important
>collaborative organizing process to promote the delivery of effective,
>efficient services.  Two key FEA elements are defining the business of
>government services (via the Business Reference Model) and improving
>performance (via the Performance Reference Model).  How do we do that?  How
>do we learn how to do that together?  Who are our users, and what are their
>real goals and needs?  What do they want to do?  How does that translate to
>action?  And how do we know when we're succeeding?  The emerging Community
>of Practice on Usability will share insights and perspectives around these
>questions, in light of FEA goals.
