About Oregon's E-Government Program
The Oregon Electronic Government Program ("E-Government Program") provides online services to Oregon residents, visitors, and businesses over the internet through desktop or mobile devices. The E-Government Program is advised by two boards,
Electronic Government Portal Advisory Board ("EPAB") and
E-Governance Board. We have worked closely with our prime contract Tyler Oregon for about 10 years.
We manage the Oregon.gov portal that hosts over 165 websites with over 300 different online services. These online services are growing at a rate between 20 to 30 per year. Within state government, we are the largest enterprise provider of websites, internet applications, transparent government data, tools to support collaboration, and online payment processing.
Oregon.gov has become an important medium for accessing state government information and services. We support government transparency with the
Data.oregon.gov portal, which is viewed over 20 million times per year. We provide many internet applications such as licensing, public meetings, training, event management, and hundreds of services to dynamically search for information. In enabling agencies to collect payments online, agencies collect substantial payments online -- with single year high exceeding $3 billion.
With input from our stakeholders, both inside and outside state government, we aim to improve existing services and to develop new ones that positively impact Oregonians and our government partners.
The E-Governance Board membership ranges from small boards and commissions to large state agencies. The 20+ members focus on improving how to best meet the needs of public and create consistency through website design and function. The E-Governance Board sets website standards and provides guidelines and best practices so the public can find what they need fast.
The Electronic Government Portal Advisory Board ("EPAB") is composed of members from the public, the legislature, and state government executives. The Board's primary function is to provide advice and guidance to the state government concerning the delivery of online services to the public. While it predominantly focuses on the services offered by the Enterprise Information Services ("EIS") E-Government Program through Shared Services, its scope aligns with the definition outlined in ORS 276A.270-276. Members of the legislature serve in a non-voting capacity, contributing essential feedback to address the needs of Oregonians. Public members, including one student representative, play a vital role in ensuring that our efforts are connected to what matters to Oregonians.
