House Adds Pentagon to Federal IT Acquisition Bill

CongressThe House has approved a revision to the recently-passed federal information technology acquisition bill through a voice vote, FCW reported Tuesday.

Adam Mazmanian writes the Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act has been revised to include the Defense Department in its covered agencies.

The legislation aims to give agencies a single chief information officer that holds centralized authority to decide on hiring and budget matters, according to the report.

The presidentially-appointed CIO will report to the agency leader and hold expanded oversight on IT executives of component agencies under the bill, FCW reports.
