Government Agencies Fall Short in Assessing IT Projects
A Government Accountability Office report finds that the departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs, HHS and other agencies are not regularly evaluating their information technology projects as required by the Office of Management and Budget. According to the report, HHS has evaluated many of its IT investments, but its analyses do not address all of the factors in the OMB guidelines.
