U.S. Courts: Action Needed to Improve IT Management and Establish a Chief Information Officer, Report to Congressional Requesters [open pdf - 1MB]
From the Highlights: "The Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts relies on IT [information technology] systems to manage information to support its lines of business. These lines of business include case management, court administration, and probation and pretrial services. GAO [Government Accountability Office] was asked to review the Office's IT management. This report evaluates, among other things, the extent to which the Office (1) implemented selected leading IT workforce planning and management practices, (2) implemented selected best practices for planning and managing IT projects, and (3) has a CIO [Chief Information Officer] with the authority to exercise enterprise control and oversight of the Office's IT workforce and project portfolio."
