ABSTRACT

Federal Information Technology (IT) Budgeting Process in the Executive Branch: An Overview [August 17, 2021]   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Introduction: "Federal spending on information technology (IT) for executive branch agencies and activities totaled an estimated $92 billion in FY2021. The effective and efficient use of IT may play a key role in policy implementation across the federal government's diverse activities. The use of IT as an implementation tool may also inform deliberations on policy design, as Congress, agency officials, and the President consider policy options and corresponding opportunities and risks. IT systems also facilitate congressional oversight of policy areas and executive agencies. [...] This report is intended to assist Members, committees, and congressional staff with questions about selected aspects of IT management in the executive branch. In particular, the report covers key milestones in the executive budget process for IT investments."
