Collaborative Expedition Workshop #63, Tuesday and Wednesday, July 17-18, 2007 at NSF    (3MI5)

Building the Way Forward Together: Towards Stable Meaning and Records Preservation in Information-Sharing    (3MI6)

Workshop Purpose    (3MID)

The purpose of the workshop is to envision greater possibilities for robust cyberinfrastructure to accommodate routine public record-keeping, as well as agile responsiveness in the event of regional or global disasters. Participants will share lessons learned from virtual organizations (informal to formal, non-government to multi-government), employing the quality record-keeping needed for trust in relationships. The workshop will open up dialogue and facilitate "bootstrapping" among multiple communities committed to advancing records management capacity for electronically stored information. The workshop supports information exchange among Federal Enterprise Architecture improvement activities advancing citizen-centric government in 2007.    (3MRB)

Collaborative Expedition Workshop Series Background    (3MJT)

Purpose and Audience: The GSA Office of Intergovernmental Solutions leads monthly Collaborative Expedition workshops to advance the quality of citizen-government dialogue and collaborations at the crossroads of intergovernmental initiatives, Communities of Practice, Federal IT research and IT user agencies. The workshops seek to advance collaborative innovations in government and community services such as emergency preparedness, environmental monitoring, healthcare and law enforcement.    (3MJU)

The workshops serve individuals from government, business, and non-government organizations to practice an emerging societal form, Communities of Practice (CoPs) or Communities of Interest (CoIs), that augment Government project teams, in a manner responsive to the Citizen-Centric Government goal of the President’s Management Agenda and the Public Information Access provisions of the E-government Act of 2002.    (3MJV)

Each workshop organizes participation around a common purpose, larger than any institution, including government. By learning how to appreciate multiple perspectives around potentials and realities of this larger “purpose”, subsequent actions by individuals representing many forms of expertise, can be better expressed in their home and collaborative settings. By centering around people and the "whole system" challenges they organize around, IT design and development processes can mature with less risk and greater national yield of breakthrough performance.    (3MJW)

Joint workshop sponsors in addition to GSA, include the Architecture and Infrastructure Committee and Best Practices Committee of the Federal CIO Council, and the National Coordination Office for Networking and Information Technology Research and Development, Social, Economic and Workforce Implications of IT and IT Workforce Development Coordinating Group. These organizations value this “frontier outpost” to open up quality conversations, augmented by information technology, to leverage the collaborative capacity of united, but diverse sectors of society, seeking to discover, frame, and act on national and international potentials.    (3MJX)
