David A. Powner (au)
Statement of David A. Powner, Dir., Info. Tech. Mgt. Issues, GAO. Billions of taxpayer dollars are spent on fed. info tech. (IT) projects each year: for FY2009, fed. IT spending has risen to an estimated $71 billion. Given the size of these investments and their significance to the health, economy, and security of the nation, it is important that the Office of Mgt. and Budget (OMB) and fed. agencies are providing adequate ovesight and ensuring transparency of these programs, to help ensure that programs are delivered on time, within budget, and with the promised capabilities. During the past several years, GAO has issued numerous reports and testimonies on OMBís initiatives to highlight troubled projects, justify IT investments, and use project mgt. tools. For ex., OMB has used a Mgt. Watch List to identify major projects that were poorly planned and has required agencies to identify high-risk projects that have performance shortfalls. GAO made many recommendations to improve these initiatives and further enhance oversight and transparency of IT projects. GAO was asked to testify on key OMB efforts to improve the oversight and transparency of fed. IT projects. In preparing this testimony, GAO relied on its prior reports and testimonies. GAO also followed up with OMB to determine the status of its efforts to implement past recommendations. Illus.
