Letter asks for ITMRA information

The main congressional backers of the Information Technology Management Reform Act wrote to the Office of Management and Budget last week seeking information on how the executive branch is carrying out the new law. The letter, signed by Reps. William Clinger (R-Pa.), Cardiss Collins (D-Ill.), Floyd Spence (R-S.C.), Ronald Dellums (D-Calif.), Stephen Horn (R-Calif.), Tom Davis (R-Va.), and Sens. William Cohen (R-Maine) and Carl Levin (D-Mich.), asks OMB to tell them how agencies are selecting new chief information officers, whether performance measures have been developed, what investment control procedures are being put in place and what directives have been issued by OMB. OMB has until July 10 to respond.
