FCW : December 2013
December 2013 FCW.COM 27 HealthCare.gov s program management. Finally, with regard to FITARA, the bill should specify what constitutes an IT acquisition cadre. Many in govern- ment think it includes the program manager, contracting of cer and con- tracting of cer s representative. For small, commodity IT acquisitions, that might be suf cient, but for large, complex programs, the IT acquisition cadre must be viewed much more expansively. Dan Gordon, former administrator of the Of ce of Federal Procurement Policy, said it well in a July 13 Of ce of Management and Budget memo regarding IT acquisition cadres: "This will include government staff with expertise in program management, resource management, procurement, systems architecture and engineering, security, requirements analysis, test management, con guration manage- ment, and other disciplines, as neces- sary, to act in the best interest of the government, evaluate all aspects of the project, and ensure delivery of prom- ised functionality." The most critical contributor to IT program success is the expertise and experience of the government team members who are running the program. IT management reform leg- islation should explicitly address that essential component. Given the current focus on IT issues in government, now is the time for Congress to act and aggressively pur- sue legislation that can pass and be sent to the president. Given the presi- dent s recent statements regarding the need for IT procurement reform, I hope he would be predisposed to support such legislation. ■ Past attempts at procurement reform 1994 Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act 1996 Clinger-Cohen Act 2003 Services Acquisition Reform Act 2005 General Services Administration Reorganization Act 2008 Fiscal 2009 National Defense Authorization Act 2013 Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act FCW Has Gone Mobile.
