Federal Chief Information Officer Steve VanRoekel says good management policies should be enough to improve how agencies buy, operate and deliver technology.
Steven VanRoekel, the federal chief information officer, joined Federal News Radio for a free online chat to discuss the White House's latest IT priorities. View an archived version of the discussion.
In the fiscal 2015 budget, the White House laid out initiatives that fall under each of the four pillars of the management agenda. The federal IT budget would drop to $79.1 billion in 2015 -- down from $81.4 billion in 2014.
Agencies must use only cloud services that have been approved under the Federal Risk Authorization and Management Program (FedRAMP) by June. OMB will receive more details on agency progress with the latest quarterly update through PortfolioStat. Meanwhile, FedRAMP's security baseline will be revised this summer.
PortfolioStat is widely deployed across federal agencies and thus well worth exploring how we may be able to maximize the benefits derived from it.
Federal News Radio surveyed more than a dozen current and former federal officials about what technology and acquisition stories stood out last year.
The Government Accountability Office looked at two initiatives that are supposed to help get information technology spending under control. GAO found that both initiatives are coming up short.
The Department of Health and Human Services will release a solicitation for email-as-a-service this summer.
