re: Feds Fall Short On IT Project Management
I find it troublesome, although not that surprising, that such large investments were going unchecked during annual accountability reports. As the US faces major economic uncertainty, it only makes sense that we scrutinize our spending and make sure that the funds being spent for new IT investments are being utilized correctly and are going towards programs that meet certain key factors: cost, schedule, customer satisfaction, innovation, etc. Tightening down on these efforts will either force programs to become more effective or shift money to better programs.

We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
