THE PUSH: Google Inc. is gearing up to sell its Web-hosted applications such as e-mail and word processing to a wider range of federal, state and local government agencies.

THE PRIZE: Google gets a certification that means its system for running the online programs is considered reliable enough to store most electronic data handled by U.S. government employees.

THE PURSE: Google has been trying to promote cloud computing as a way for businesses and government agencies to reduce their technology expenses. It could also help Google reduce its financial dependence on Internet advertising.
