A Congressional Research Service report claims the White House’s federal website reform program completed less than half of its targeted website consolidation projects since July 2011.

According to Fierce Government IT, there were approximately 1,759 .gov websites active in July 2011.

The government completed 300 out of its 879 targeted consolidation plans, the CRS said.

In a blog post last year, Macon Phillips, the White House’s digital strategy director, outlined a plan to eliminate half of all .gov domains.

Still, the initiative has fell 579 websites short of its overall goal, according to the report.

The CRS report also took a look at Performance.gov and criticized it for not providing detailed information regarding agency goals and quarterly updates.
