Several technology advocacy groups sent an open letter to leadership at the Office of Management and Budget requesting more federal guidance regarding the provisions in the 21st Century Integrated Digital Experience Act, otherwise known as the IDEA Act, specifically regarding how government offices should execute the law.
Addressed to OMB Director Shalanda Young, the Alliance for Digital Innovation, BSA | The Software Alliance, and the Software and Information Industry Association asked for OMB to flesh out stronger agency guidelines to help government organizations abide by the modernization requirements of the IDEA Act.
“Today’s citizens demand robust digital interactions, akin to what they see shopping online or otherwise engaging with a private-sector business,” the letter reads. “This theme goes to the heart of what the 21st Century IDEA was intended to address and is consistent with the digitization trends we have seen in recent years.”
