GAO: Federal Agencies Behind on IT Consolidation Savings

GAOA Government Accountability Office report says federal agencies have largely not developed comprehensive plans to consolidate information technology systems under the PortfolioStat initiative, Nextgov reported Wednesday.

Joseph Marks writes GAO identified 200 IT reform opportunities that could save agencies up to $5.8 billion through 2015.

GAO’s savings projection is more than double the $2.5 billion estimated by U.S. Chief Information Officer Steven VanRoekel, according to the report.

PortfolioStat launched in March 2012 and VanRoekel expanded the program this year to give agency-level CIOs more authority and help agencies to further streamline IT operations, Marks reports.
