FCW : February 2015
February 2015 FCW.COM 19 the authority to shut it down,” Issa said. Dave McClure, former associate administrator of the General Serv- ices Administration’s Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies and a former auditor specializing in IT issues at the Government Accountabil- ity Office, sees a big opportunity for improved accountability. “The CIO is going to be the key spokesperson for a Cabinet department on where they are with their IT strat- egy, IT security and IT spending,” he said. “In the past, that’s been bifurcated across CIOs, and it’s been hard for a departmentwide CIO to answer ques- tions in full compliance because they don’t own or control funding, contract- ing and strategy for the entire entity. That changes a lot under FITARA.” Implementation will be the key to improving governance. Issa and co- sponsor Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) have pledged to make sure the law’s provisions are instituted through guid- ance from the Office of Management and Budget to the civilian agencies that fall under the FITARA umbrella. Making implementation work The law originated in the House Over- sight and Government Reform Com- mittee. Issa’s memorable tenure as chairman of the panel recently ended, and he has moved on to lead the Judi- ciary Committee’s Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet Subcommit- tee. Connolly remains on the oversight committee and will serve as ranking member of the Government Opera- tions Subcommittee, where he plans to keep a hand in IT issues and FITA- RA implementation in particular. Connolly told FCW that he will track efforts by OMB and the CIO Council to develop guidance for agencies on FITA- RA and oversee implementation on an agency-by-agency basis. He wants to make sure that “every agency head is held accountable for establishing own- ership over concrete, detailed FITARA implementation plans and policies for his or her given agency.” “I think we have a real opportunity A November 2013 hearing on HealthCare. gov was a prime example of the finger- pointing and fuzzy accountability that can surround IT oversight. FITARA supporters say the new law can create more clarity.
