Federal CIO Margie Graves: Agencies Move to Implement Standardized IT Spending Tracker

Federal agencies have started to implement a standard framework for monitoring information technology spending, FCW reported Tuesday.

Margie Graves, acting federal chief information officer, said that the Technology Business Management framework is intended to help government agencies locate IT costs and understand their business cases.

Graves added that the CIO Council and General Services Administration‘s office of government-wide policy have solicited feedback from private and public entities that have already adopted the TBM taxonomy.

Dominic Sale, GSA deputy associate administrator, said that current efforts to implement the TBM framework are primarily led by CIOs, but leaders “across the c-suite” should also be involved in the process.

Sale noted that the government is implementing TBM through a phased approach and that the process will likely take years to complete.
