Announcement: Tech Industry Lauds OMB Plan for Improving Federal IT

In the wake of the Obama Administration’s decision to halt or review billions of dollars worth of information technology programs, TechAmerica Foundation is convening a group of experts from industry and academia to provide recommendations for improving the way the federal government purchases and implements IT systems.

Commission Sponsors

Linda Gooden, executive vice president of Lockheed Martin’s Information Systems & Global Solutions and Dr. Steve Kelman of Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government will co-chair the Commission on the Government Technology Opportunity in the 21st Century (GTO-21).

Renato (Renny) A. DiPentima, former CEO of SRA International Inc. and a senior adviser at Providence Equity Partners, and Christopher Yukins, co-director of The George Washington University’s Government Procurement Law Program, will serve as co-vice chairs.

The leadership of GTO-21 and TechAmerica Foundation are looking for leading technology procurement and management experts from industry and academia to serve as Commissioners and to help identify solutions to the root-causes of many of the problems facing federal technology programs.

Our goal is to develop a road map for transforming IT acquisitions and management, and to produce that road map in time for the Administration to consider our findings as they craft a FY 2012 budget.

Nominations for service on the Commission were open until July 23, 2010. Please note, in order to help defray costs related to the Commission and its efforts, TechAmerica Foundation will request that the participant’s employer make a donation to the foundation to help defray the costs of this project.
