While Core.gov holds a lot of components, those applications that can be linked with others to complete business transactions, it has not been nearly as useful as it could be, Burk said.
Officials are establishing a new governance process and “have begun a top review of various service components for inclusion” into the repository, he said.
Core.gov will also take on a larger role as a collaborative tool for participants in governmentwide projects such as the lines of business.
“I don’t know whether this will be consolidation of IT infrastructure, whether it’ll be standardization across multiple agencies, or whether it’ll simply be a series of smart buys,” Burk said. “There certainly seems to be the promise for saving quite a bit of money and improving the service.”
