Federal IT Managers Should Start Early for Next Year's Investments and Budgets

Share Article

Federal agencies submitted their Fiscal Year 2006 budgets for information technology (IT) to the Office of Management and Budget in September. There is a temptation to relax for a few months now. But proactive preparation now is crucial for assuring success for next year's Capital Planning and Investment Control (CPIC) initiatives.

Don't relax just yet. If you are involved in the Capital Planning and Investment Control (CPIC) process prescribed by OMB's Circular A-11, it's time to plan how to be successful with your future Federal budgets for information technology (IT).

The October edition of the FEDERAL SECTOR REPORT spells out what to do now. It addresses:

  • Defensive Actions, to avoid short-term problems and rude crises
  • Tactical Actions, to prepare for next year's Federal budget cycle 2007
  • Strategic Actions, to align long-term capital investment plans with your future vision for business, information, and technology architecture.
