DHS Makes Strides Toward Citizen-Centered Digital Government

Posted by: Margaret H. Graves, DHS Acting Chief Information Officer

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), as part of the Administration’s Digital Government Strategy, has reached key agency milestones to enable a more efficient and coordinated digital service delivery.

DHS has launched new mobile-enabled websites and Open Data Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), making our data easier to find and more accessible, allowing us to better serve the needs of the American public and help fuel entrepreneurship. To this end:

DHS has also launched www.dhs.gov/developer which allows the public and software developers easier access to DHS-maintained open data APIs, web services, mobile apps, mobile-enabled sites, and developers forums. 

The Digital Government Strategy will align public government services with 21st century capabilities. DHS is committed to enabling better utilization of departmental data to improve the quality of services to the American people, as we strengthen the delivery of our digital services.

You can learn more about DHS’ implementation of the Digital Government Strategy by visiting DHS’ Digital Strategy site (www.dhs.gov/dhs-digital-strategy).
