The Federal government currently has over 7,000 ongoing IT projects, ranging from new citizen-facing services to systems that help government employees perform their jobs more effectively. The metrics here and on the IT Dashboard provide a measure of how well agencies are doing at ensuring these projects develop the promised capabilities without exceeding estimated costs or going over deadline. Agency CIOs are required to terminate or turn around one-third of all underperforming IT Investments by June 2012, by engaging in robust portfolio management to ensure the highest return in our investments and holding TechStat accountability sessions for underperforming investments. In addition to these IT Reforms, the Administration has frozen and is reviewing financial system modernization projects. More information on effectively managing large-scale IT projects can be found in the 25-Point Implementation Plan to Reform Federal IT Management.
The IT dashboard data includes all CFO-act agencies and NARA, USACE, and Smithsonian, while Performance.gov data only includes CFO-act agencies.
