OMB's new Web site to analyze programs in layman's terms

WASHINGTON, DC: The Federal Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has launched a new Web site, ExpectMore.gov, meant to offer a frank, unbiased look at Federal programs in language meant to be comprehensible to lay people and legislators.

WASHINGTON, DC: The Federal Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has launched a new Web site, ExpectMore.gov, meant to offer a frank, unbiased look at Federal programs in language meant to be comprehensible to lay people and legislators.

The new site offers ratings of nearly 800 Federal programs, constituting 80% of the Federal budget, and assesses each for strengths and weaknesses, and how the oversight agency plans to improve them. 

Per an OMB release, only 15% of the programs get an "effective" score on the ratings, which derive from an assessment developed by the OMB. 

Deputy press secretary Alex Conant said the OMB won't promote the site beyond releases, and initial coverage at a press conference last week, during which a demo of the site was carried live on CSPAN.
