The Commerce Department says that as things stand the 2010 Census is now expected to come in on schedule and 22 percent under budget, meaning a savings of $1.6 billion in 2010. Congressional reaction to the news is split along party lines with some lawmakers praising the efforts of the Census Bureau to do an accurate and cost-effective population count - while one lawmaker calls the claims "smoke and mirrors."
Agencies are to review all IT projects over the next month, and the programs that are in the worst shape will go through TechStat sessions. This analysis is part two of a three pronged approach to fixing systemic problems with technology initiatives. Federal CIO Kundra says OMB will try to address those long-standing problems in October through the release of best practices.
