Kundra to CIOs: Get ready for Aug. 7 evaluation

Kundra to CIOs: Get ready for Aug. 7 evaluation - top government contractors - best government contracting event

kundraFirst came the IT dashboard. Now comes judgment day. Federal CIO Kundra tells Federal News Radio’s Jason Miller that Aug. 7 is the day the CIO Council will analyze portfolios across agencies.

“This [Aug. 7 evaluation] will require first CIOs who may not have had power before to collect information and to vet the information,” says Kundra to Federal News Radio. “There is not a target in the number of projects that will be put on hold, but we want to make decisions that make sense.”

The upcoming evaluation comes on the heels of the VA’s decision to temporarily halt 45 information technology projects totaling $200 million this year; they’d either exceeded their budget or timeline this year.
