The General Services Administration is partnering across the government to implement a new information technology strategy, Chief Information Officer Casey Coleman said in a blog post.
Coleman wrote that the GSA has seen successes in its reform efforts, including the adoption of TechStat process to review IT investments.
Through TechStat, GSA identified more than $600,000 in resources and diverted that funding to other programs, she wrote.
Adopting the Obama administration’s cloud first policy will reduce government spending on e-mail systems by 50 percent or $3 million per year, according to Coleman.
Last summer, GSA became the first agency to move its email to cloud computing.
