Recently, Federal IT officials have been talking about important changes to the way that financial management systems at federal agencies are upgraded. But now one of the government’s top financial managers is also speaking out on the need for new thinking when the time comes for modernizing those systems.
The administration issues two new memos focusing on all IT projects and specifically on financial management systems. OMB will issue guidance in the next month detailing how they will evaluate which programs are at most risk.

The administration’s goals are lower costs and improve performance by addressing long standing project problems.
