Van Hitch, Senior Adviser, Deloitte Consulting LLP

The Office of Management and Budget released its draft guidance for agency compliance with the Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act last week. FITARA gives federal CIOs greater budgetary responsibility, and a larger say in IT decisions. OMB's draft guidance attempts to help agencies navigate these new waters. Van Hitch is a senior adviser at Deloitte Consulting, and a former Justice Department CIO. As part of the Partnership for Public Service's SAGE Program, he was part of a team of former government officials who volunteered their time to review and comment on these draft guidelines at the request of OMB. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain what else is in it.
