New Public-Private Commission to Recommend Strategies for Gov’t IT Spending Transparency

BudgetThe Technology Business Management Council has assembled a group of public and private sector information technology leaders to develop approaches for federal agencies to communicate and report IT investments, Federal Times reported Wednesday.

Aaron Boyd writes the Commission on IT Cost, Opportunity, Strategy and Transparency aims to create a standard reference system to help federal chief information officers to manage their agencies’ IT spending.

“This taxonomy isn’t just for the high level,” Sylvia Burns, CIO of the Interior Department and a member of the new commission, told Federal Times.

“It’s how do you have a constructive dialog where you’re actually talking the same language at any level in the organization,” Burns added.

The group is scheduled to convene in June and expects to issue recommendations in early 2016.
