This is the April 16, 2021 hearing on "Agency Compliance with the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA)," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Government Operations of the Committee on Oversight and Reform. From the opening statement of Gerald E. Connolly: "Since the enactment of the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act in 2014, this subcommittee has maintained steady and bipartisan oversight of the agency implementation of the law. FITARA was enacted to establish a long-term framework through which Federal IT [information technology] investments could be tracked, assessed, and managed to significantly reduce wasteful spending and improve project outcomes. FITARA is a report card that holds agencies accountable and exhorts them to improve their IT postures, and in practice, it's a tool for Congress and the public to ensure better cybersecurity, reduce wasteful spending, and make government service to the Nation more effective." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Gundeep Ahluwalia, Jay Mahanand, and Kevin Walsh.
