FITARA Services

The Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act aka FITARA has been Federal Law for Acquiring and Managing IT Resources within Federal Agencies since December 19, 2014.  It strengthens the authority of Agency Chief Information Officers (CIOs) by specifying that Agencies may not submit an IT budget, enter into IT acquisitions, or hire bureau CIOs without the approval of the Agency CIO.  It enables Congress to monitor Agencies’ progress and hold them accountable for reducing duplication and achieving cost savings. 

Twice a year Congress holds a hearing to discuss the FITARA scorecard and listen to Agencies that have been improving their implementation of FITARA requirements and Agencies that are still struggling..  Below is the latest FITARA 6.0 Scorecard.  You can also access the previous scorecards below.
 
GAO:  “The federal government is projected to invest more than $89 billion in IT ... Historically, these investments have frequently failed, incurred cost overruns and schedule slippages, or contributed little to mission-related outcomes”.

FITARA 5.0


We advise Federal Government OCIOs on FITARA implementation strategies to reduce duplication and improve cost savings, even more.
