As the online revolution continues to sweep the nation, Mayor Vincent Gray continues to use the new technology to keep DC residents informed about what is taking place in his administration. Today Gray makes yet another website available to the public to keep track of where their tax dollars are going.
"Transparency and public feedback have always been integral parts of the One City Action Plan, and this new site further allows the public to track our progress as we follow the plan. I'm proud that we're already making significant progress on achieving its ambitious goals," Gray said.
The new website will enable residents and stakeholders to track progress on the plan's initiatives to improve the economy and continue growth in the city. The D.C. economy is based on a comprehensive strategy which is described in the One City Action Plan that Gray released in July 2012. His vision of growing and diversifying the District's economy is based on educating and preparing the District's workforce for the New Economy.
The plan includes giving business leaders and D.C. residents a concrete road map so they can understand and measure progress on various initiatives and then hold District officials responsibility for getting the job done.
The new website will provide a status update for each action item in the plan. The items will be labeled as either completed, on track, or delayed. There are 66 action items in the plan. As of today nine items have been completed, 55 items are on track, and two items have been delayed.
There are graphs on the website which will show progress on the long term indicators found in the plan. City residents should log on to http://ocap.gov. The face of the page appears in this report. It is active and providing information of the action being taken by city employees to follow the Mayor's instructions.
