Vienna, VA (PRUnderground) July 24th, 2015
Fusion PPT, a recognized strategy and technology consulting firm announced today that it has released its FY16 Federal IT Priorities Report. With the Federal Government IT budget continuing to hover below $80 billion, this February, the president requested a 1.8 percent increase over the $78.3 billion agencies estimate they’ll spend this fiscal year – approximately a 10% percent increase over fiscal 2014 spending. At the same time the president released his budget request, partisan groups, legislators and government watchdogs criticized the overall spending on IT and value obtained from this spending compared to private industries.
While legislation and opinions originating from the White House have always focused on more efficient, effective and secure government IT spending, the third appointed Federal CIO, Tony Scott, continued to trumpet bold visions and federal IT transformation. Scott was appointed by President Obama in March of 2015 and explained how “driving value is also about driving efficiency” in his first speech. Some of his proposed ideas included “adoption of agile technologies” and “creating the right kinds of dashboards that will help us understand whether we’re making progress or not.”
A fundamental question to answer is: Are these bold visions trickling down to agencies and rank-and-file IT leaders within the government and contracting communities? Criticism around spending and efficiency also runs parallel to high-profile security breaches of some of the most sensitive government data reported over the past year. If this security issue is not addressed, breaches will continue to occur and increase in frequency.
