The government working on new initiatives in shared services, innovation and vendor relationships as part of efforts to change federal information technology spending, FierceGovernmentIT reported Wednesday.

Dibya Sarkar writes that Anne Rung, administrator of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy, spoke of programs on spending transparency, information sharing and process streamlining at the Chief Information Officers Council IT Symposium.

Rung also referred to the implementation of categories for federal spending and a future enterprise software category team to handle enterprise software agreements.

The report said the Office of Management and Budget is also working on an online acquisition gateway to provide information on contracts, fees, prices and requirements.

OFPP also seeks to provide specialized training on IT acquisition and form a team of certified digital IT acquisition personnel, Rung added.

“We want to let agencies have the flexibility to develop as how they see fit, but we’ll just have some general principles that we think they should follow,” she said.
