Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies
The Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies is the nation's focal point for data, information and services offered by the federal government to citizens. In addition, we play a leadership role in identifying and applying new technologies to effective government operations and excellence in customer service in the government.
The Office of Citizen Services’ primary goal is to ensure that the public has a unified experience when accessing information from the government from the web (USA.gov and GobiernoUSA.gov), in print, and over the telephone (1-800 FED INFO). This includes new delivery channels such as mobile, as well as new technology such as APIs.
The Office of Innovative Technologies focuses on initiatives that enable agencies to deliver most effective and efficient services to citizens, Information technology initiatives that advance the President’s technology agenda, including e-Government initiatives and Cloud computing initiatives under the Federal Cloud Computing Program Management Office (PMO.)
We work closely with other government agencies—federal, state, local, and international—to collect and consolidate information and make it available to the public and share experiences that lead to better solutions. We also lead several interagency groups to share best practices and develop strategies for improving the way we provide services to the American public.
We also champion DigitalGov solutions, from loosening data to developing mobile development guidelines to app and website development to best practices and policy through the DigitalGov platform.
