GSA complies with OMB’s PortfolioStat reporting requirements by coordinating the:
Integrated Data Collection (IDC)
In March 2013, OMB issued M-13-09 which instituted an IDC channel to report on progress in meeting IT strategic goals, objectives and metrics, as well as cost savings and avoidance resulting from IT management actions. The IDC draws on previously reported information from numerous sources. These sources include PortfolioStat, the FDCCI, the Federal Digital Government Strategy, quarterly Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) metrics, the Federal IT Dashboard, and selected human resource, financial management, and procurement information requested by OMB.
In March 2012, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) launched an initiative referred to as PortfolioStat to maximize the return on IT investments across the government’s IT portfolio. PortfolioStat is designed to drive down overall IT expenditures for the federal government. The PortfolioStat program assists agencies in assessing the maturity of their IT investment management process, eliminating duplicative investments, and moving to shared solutions (such as cloud computing) within and across agencies.
On a semi-annual basis, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) meets with GSA’s senior IT leadership to review progress on IT investments and initiatives. This meeting is an informal working session not only for OMB to provide suggestions for improvement to GSA, but for GSA to share successes and challenges that OMB may utilize to improve its own IT performance metrics or to mature the IT initiatives at other Federal Agencies.
