Federal News Radio has been following the development of dashboards -- tools for tracking data points.

The Bush administration had the President's Management Agenda scorecard, which was an early version of a public dashboard for measuring performance.

Bryan Sivak is chief technology officer of the D.C. government and tells us more.
