At Energy.gov, we believe that a good idea can come from anywhere and that our community can pull together to make what we do even better.

So, we’re taking part in the launch of a two-week online conversation called the National Dialogue for Improving Federal Websites to harness the wisdom of the crowd.

We know there is a goldmine of good ideas from our community, so we hope that you'll actively participate in the discussion and share your expertise and knowledge.  

We want to hear what's working well, what can be improved and innovative ways to rethink the federal web. We welcome your submissions and votes on ideas for content, search, usability, accessibility, social media, multilingual content and online services.   

The dialogue is part of the .gov Reform Initiative, which is part of President Obama's Campaign to Cut Waste. The Initiative aims to identify websites that can be consolidated to reduce costs and improve the quality of service to the American public. 

The .gov Task Force will review your ideas and consider them as they develop a National Web Strategy and make recommendations for streamlining federal websites, strengthening federal web policy and improving citizens' experience with federal websites.   

The dialogue, which you can access here, runs through Friday, Sept. 30.
