3. Portfolio Review

4. Expansion of Training and Use of Information Technology Cadres

5. Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative

6. Maximizing the Benefit of the Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative

To implement the requirements of FITARA, combined with the need to update policy and guidance related to other modern IT practices, OMB is establishing this guidance. This guidance reflects input from a diverse group of stakeholders, including representatives from the Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Chief Human Capital Officer (CHCO), Chief Acquisition Officer (CAO), Assistant Secretaries for Management (ASAM), and Chief Operating Officers (COOs) communities.
