FCW : April 30, 2013
Trending April 30, 2013 FCW.COM 3 The government could save tens of billions of dollars annually by elimi- nating duplicative and wasteful spend- ing, the Government Accountability Of ce reported this month. And now GAO has an online dashboard to track agencies responses to those and other recommendations. Anyone interested in the govern- ment s response to GAO recommen- dations on IT, for example, could visit the Action Tracker, check the box marked "Information Technol- ogy" and navigate to any of the ve topic areas to see the government s progress. The new tool reveals that the Obama administration is act- ing on several GAO priorities with recommendations in its scal 2014 budget. Budget guidance from the Of ce of Management and Budget, cited by GAO, requires agencies to plan to consolidate duplicative or low-value IT investments. GAO reports that, "with this updated guidance, federal agen- cies are now more likely to identify duplication across their IT portfolio and reduce or avoid IT costs across the agencies." Similarly, OMB adopted GAO s recommendations on the use of "IT investment categories" designed to help agencies identify duplicate and overlapping IT spending. In an April 9 hearing devoted to the GAO report, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Commit- tee, credited the Obama adminis- tration for proposing $25 billion in savings through cuts and consoli- dations. Issa also took the opportunity to cite his committee s recent passage of the Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act as a way to save the government money. "If we implement this and other harmonized programs, we can save many dollars," he said. --- Adam Mazmanian GAO launches dashboard to track action on its recommendations of federal IT managers believe their budgets will be even lower in 2015, according to a recent MeriTalk survey 73% FCW CALENDAR Secure mobile Attendees will learn how agencies can mitigate mobile security issues and use the latest technologies to protect endpoints, networks and data centers at this FCW Executive Brie ng.
