Better IT Governance Helping some Agencies Reduce Duplication

February 20, 2012

Three of the largest agencies are using improved governance processes to reduce the number of duplicative technology systems.

The Defense Department has developed a three pronged approach to examine new IT projects. Teri Takai, the DoD chief information officer, said the investment review board, the acquisition process and the Defense Business Systems Management Committee have helped reign in decentralized planning and budgeting.

And all three will play larger role starting next year by examining not just new, but also existing IT spending. DoD's IT budget request for fiscal 2013 is $37.1 billion.
