The White House has updated the government’s information technology dashboard, Federal Chief Information Officer Steven VanRoekel announced Tuesday.
VanRoekel said in a blog post that the updates would improve surveillance of IT investments across federal agencies.
A May 2011 TechAmerica and Grant Thornton survey concluded the dashboard was a good idea but needed work.
VanRoekel wrote four major updates have been made to the dashboard for accessibility, volume, data quality and identifying duplication.
Users can now access information regarding individual projects and activities about investments, funding sources and performance.
Users can also compare different IT portfolios per agency, bureau, type of business, and budget count.
Data check has also been updated via use of data validation and warning which has been installed to prevent erroneous data.
