Last August, we noted our efforts in support of President Obama’s May 23, 2012, memorandum on Building a 21st Century Platform to Better Serve the American People. That memorandum launched a comprehensive Digital Government Strategy to make government services and information available anywhere, anytime, and on any device, and in formats that facilitate additional use by public developers and entrepreneurs.
The NRC took this memo seriously and in March we implemented the agency’s first mobile solution for the 2013 Regulatory Information Conference, allowing attendees to access the conference agenda and download conference publications from their own mobile devices. We plan to further grow capabilities for future conferences.
To improve access to information, we have also used RSS feeds to make a number of NRC resources more readily available. These include reports on the operating status and power output of commercial power reactors, daily events and activities occurring at commercial power reactors, power reactor inspection reports, and NRC daily news releases.
In addition, through our newly available Developer’s Page we are providing the ability to search and retrieve NRC documents from NRC’s documents collections, operating reactor inspection reports and other NRC information resources.
As part of our Digital Government Strategy program, we are developing plans that will continue to focus on making high value data and content available for application developers and opportunities to use mobile devices to improve existing services. So stay tuned.
