May 15, 2015 FCW.COM 23 IT procurement, and the use of data to drive innovation. The Department of Homeland Secu- rity is seeking $10 million for a 50-per- son digital services team that will bring commercial best practices such as agile development and open-source technolo- gy to bear on IT projects. The plan is for a decentralized team whose members are located at various DHS components. The Small Business Administration is requesting $1 million for a digital ser- vices team to improve and develop the agency’s SBA One portal, which is envisioned as a one-stop shop for accessing loan, contracting, capital and other services. The Department of Veterans Affairs did not release a dollar figure for its digital services team in its fiscal 2016 budget request, but the VA has by far the most mature program and has already shown results on several proj- ects. The department has budgeted for a 75-person team, the largest outside the program office at OMB, and the price tag is surely far ahead of other agencies’ programs. Other requests include: • Transportation Department — $9 million • Agriculture Department — $7.6 million • Justice Department — $7.4 million • Social Security Administration — $4.6 million • Interior Department — $3 million • State Department and U.S. Agency for International Development — $1.3 million • National Science Foundation — $1 million NASA, the Nuclear Regulatory Com- mission and the Office of Personnel Management include digital services in their budget requests, but do not specify a dollar amount or headcount. The Obama administration has requested $35.2 million for the Infor- mation Technology Oversight and Reform fund at OMB, which supports USDS and other governmentwide IT and e-government efforts. It’s not clear how much OMB will devote to USDS, but the effort is budgeted for 87 full- time employees in fiscal 2016. When OMB’s request is added to agencies’ funding, the overall digital services effort climbs to more than $100 million. n 0515fcw_022-023.indd 23 4/20/15 2:26 PM
