New Treasury.gov brings cost-savings, transparency
Tuesday - 12/7/2010, 4:51pm EST
In that way, the era of do-more-with-less is actually "an exciting time to be a management official in a federal agency," said Dan Tangherlini, assistant secretary for management and the chief financial officer at the Treasury Department, in an interview with the DorobekINSIDER.
What's more, the website is hosted entirely in the cloud, providing cost-savings to the department. It's the first Cabinet-level agency to move to the cloud. Treasury only pays for space it needs and cloud-hosting does not require Treasury to spend money on hardware replacements, Tangherlini said.
Moving to the cloud was a "no-brainer," he said.
The push for open government is not an impediment to management but actually helps people do their job more efficiently, especially at Treasury where so much of the work is based on data, Tangherlini said.
"We're constantly asking the question, How we can give people more for less of a very scarce, limited and precious resource -- people's tax dollars," Tangherlini said.
