Library of Congress Addresses GAO IT Recommendations

Carla Hayden, the librarian of congress, said the Library of Congress has made progress to improve information technology management since 2015, Fedscoop reported Thursday.

The library, also known as the Congress' research arm, has addressed almost 95 percent of the Government Accountability Office's recommendations from a 2015 audit.

“We have stabilized our core IT structure, we have streamlined and strengthened our IT governance and we have centralized and professionalized our IT workforce," Hayden said at a Senate hearing.

Bernard Barton, the library's chief information officer, said the organization lacked vision and oversight, and not necessarily talent. Six recommendations remain in the library's backlog and the organization plans to fully address the audit by the current fiscal year's end.
