IT Strategy & Planning

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is placing increasing importance on the planning, selection, and control of IT investments. Criticality to agency mission and demonstration of how investments will provide a positive return to taxpayers are essential. CIOs are faced with a challenge. They must balance the pressure of budget constraints with the critical need for long-term vision and investments that will transform government to be more efficient and quality-driven.
