Help Make Mobile Gov Here

With your help, we’ve discovered the case for Mobile Gov and discussed 10 challenges to agencies trying to use mobile technologies to achieve their missions and better serve the American public.

Our next step is to gather the smart minds of people in government, industry, nonprofits, academia and the general public to Design Mobile Gov.


We asked, you told us:

Do you have ideas to help Make Mobile Gov? Is there something – policy, guidance, samples – that would help you? Is there a killer app that you’d like government to push?

Got a mobile experience? 

Got a solution? 

Have a question?

You weighed in with your ideas, experiences and opinions. Whether you’re with a state or local government, private industry, nonprofit, or university – you added your voice. Whether you’re a coder, a carrier, a bureaucrat, a retiree, or someone who imagines how anywhere, anytime government information can make your life easier – you added your voice.

Your recommendations will help build an open, dynamic toolset – on a public wiki – to help agencies create and implement citizen-centric mobile gov services.

We are focusing on five areas.

  1. Policies: Tell us about policy gaps or ideas to support building mobile programs.
  2. Practices: What would jump-start your efforts? Templates? Standards? Examples? Can you share your templates, standards, business cases?
  3. Partnerships: With whom and how can we work together?
  4. Products: What are your ideas for apps, mobile sites, text programs, mashups?
  5. Promotions: What are some great ways to spread the word?
