Federal Times: The Office of Management and Budget’s Data Center Optimization Initiative has problems, according to a new Government Accountability Office audit.
Most participating agencies haven’t made much progress, and some don’t even belong in the program.
“Of the 24 agencies required to participate in the Office of Management and Budget’s Data Center Optimization Initiative, 22 collectively reported limited progress against OMB’s fiscal year 2018 performance targets,” the audit found. “Two agencies did not have a basis to report on progress as they do not have agency-owned data centers. For OMB’s five optimization targets, five agencies or less reported that they met or exceeded each of the targets.”
