Justice, Interior IT programs first casualties of federal review
The Obama administration continues to find way to cut information technology costs. The Post's Marjorie Censer has news on a few more cuts set for announcement on Monday:
The Obama administration's chief information officer is set to announce Monday (Sept. 20) the cancellation of a Justice Department information technology program and the restructuring of an Interior Department program as the first casualties in a sweeping review of 26 troublesome federal IT projects.
Vivek Kundra said he will call for remaking the way the government handles IT projects to improve accountability and transparency in an address to the Federal CIO Council on Monday morning.
Kundra also plans to announce the cancellation of the Justice Department's Litigation Case Management System and the significant restructuring of the Interior Department's Incident Management Analysis and Reporting System, both assessed as part of the Office of Management and Budget's review of the most troubled IT projects.
