This is from the December 6, 2016 joint hearing on "Federal Information Technology Reform Act (FITARA) Scorecard 3.0: Measuring Agencies Implementation" held before the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. From the opening statement of Hon. Tim Walberg: "Charged by Congress to provide quarterly progress reports, the GAO [Government Accountability Office] examined OMB's [Office of Management and Budget] steps to consolidate data centers, enhance agency transparency, and implement incremental development. These metrics were selected because their implementation will have a demonstrable benefit on IT [Information Technology] acquisition and operation, and this data is updated and available on a quarterly basis. The scorecard is a tool of both congressional oversight of FITARA and CIO [Chief Information Officers] empowerment. FITARA requires CIOs to certify that IT investments are adequately implementing incremental development. We wanted to include CIO authorities in the scorecard because this will tell us if CIOs are being given the tools to succeed, and if they are not, then that becomes either an issue of additional congressional oversight or a foothold for CIOs to assert themselves under the law. It's important that Congress continue its oversight and urge OMB to clarify its guidance directing agencies to make information about major IT investments publicly available." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: David A. Powner, Chip Fulghum, Luke J. McCormack, Frontis B. Wiggins III, and Douglas Pitkin.
