Defense Acquisition Not Included in Issa IT Reform Bill

Darrell Issa

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif) has drafted a federal bill to codify a large portion of the White House’s own information technology reform plan, designed to put teeth into agency initiatives.

Angela Petty, a Deltek senior principal research analyst, writes in the Washington Post much of the legislation focuses on IT budgeting and management, authority of agency chief information officers and developing processes for technology asset inventory.

According to Petty, the bill does not address the defense acquisition process, which represents nearly half of the federal government’s IT inventory.

Richard Beutel, senior counsel for acquisition policy for the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said last month the bill could save taxpayers up to $20 billion per year, Petty writes.

Issa plans to hold hearings on the bill in early January and formally introduce it later in the month, Petty writes.
