The Office of Management and Budget has updated a governing document created to establish policies such as procedural and analytic guidelines for federal information resources management functions.
A White House blog entry posted Wednesday said the “Circular A-130, Managing Information as a Strategic Resource” update covers a wide range of federal agency policy modifications on cybersecurity, information governance, privacy, records management, open data and acquisitions.
Chief Acquisition Officer Anne Rung, Federal Chief Information Officer Tony Scott, White House regulatory affairs lead Howard Shelanski and OMB privacy adviser Marc Groman wrote the post.
They said the update aims to help establish general policy for information technology planning and budgeting strategies through governance, acquisition and management on federal information, personnel, equipment, funds, IT resources, infrastructure and other services.
Circular A-130 covers authorities, applicability and scope, definitions, policies, oversight and appointment of responsibilities on the management of federal information resources.
