Using Technology to Achieve Open Government
The government is under pressure to reinvent the way it serves citizens. Government 2.0 is about rethinking how to deliver those services using technology to assist client agencies to coordinate their people, policies, and processes to achieve their missions while providing citizens easier access and fast, accurate information.

At the same time, agencies are facing resource constraints, so they must implement systems that provide measurable cost and time savings. Using the Internet, social media and other technological advances, Booz Allen can assist agencies to create a government that is more participatory, collaborative and transparent, while streamlining processes and procedures for efficiency and cost effectiveness.
At Booz Allen, we don't consider Government 2.0 to be solely a technology issue – it's about what the technology enables. We help our clients create a vision of the possible, based on what technology can foster and facilitate, while using a holistic methodology to ensure successful, measurable implementation.
