House lawmakers sending clear message with FITARA 11 scorecard

  • House lawmakers sending clear message with FITARA 11 scorecard

    Five agencies immediately felt the brunt of just how serious lawmakers want them to take the transition to the Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) contract.

    The lack of progress dropped two agencies — the General Services Administration and the U.S. Agency for International Development — that previously received an “A” down by a whole letter grade, and three others also dropped from Bs to Cs on the 11th Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA) scorecard. The House Oversight and Reform Committee released the latest version of the grades today.

    The committee and the Government Accountability Office told agencies after the last hearing in July that they would add agency progress to transition to EIS as a category.

    Along with GSA and United States Agency for International Development, the Commerce Department, the Social Security Administration and the Small Business Administration also saw whole letter grade drops, though at least with SSA their work under EIS seems not to have factored into their decline.

    Five agencies — Commerce, the Department of Homeland Security, NASA, SBA and the Office of Personnel Management — received Fs on their EIS transition progress. GSA and the departments of State and Defense received D grades on EIS transition.

    “Agencies continue to make progress in transitioning the legacy Networx contract to EIS.  The EIS contract will allow federal agencies to advance the administration priority of IT modernization. OMB is committed to working with agencies to help facilitate this transition,”
