With over 20,000 websites, and an estimated 100 million web pages, the United States government is striving to serve its citizens.

"The idea of reengineering through technology is critical. We didn't want to automate the old, worn processes of government. Information technology (IT) was and is the great enabler for reinvention. It allows us to rethink, in fundamental ways, how people work and how we serve customers."
Vice President Gore
"We reinvented government, transforming it into a catalyst for new ideas that stress both opportunity and responsibility, and give our people the tools they need to solve their own problems."
President Bill Clinton
