The Office of Management and Budget and a group of former and current federal chief information officers have partnered to assess how agencies implement the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act, Fedscoop reported Monday.

Billy Mitchell writes Richard Spires, former Department of Homeland Security CIO and the Internal Revenue Service; and Darren Ash, Nuclear Regulatory Commission CIO; are leading the effort to evaluate the agencies’ compliance of the law.

Spires, currently CEO of Resilient Network System, told Fedscoop that OMB would be given a template designed to examine the implementation plans of agencies under the first phase of the project.

Federal agencies are required to submit self-assessments of their FITARA compliance by Aug. 15, according to the report.

Five teams will focus respectively on governance, budget, acquisition, organization and workforce, and program management for the project, Mitchell reports.
