2001 IT spending up

Federal spending on information technology should increase 4.5 percent in fiscal 2001, according to Federal Sources Inc., which plans to announce its findings at its annual Outlook Conference. FSI is a McLean, Va.-based market research firm.

IT spending is billions of dollars higher than in past years because of new Office of Management and Budget financial reporting strategies, which break out IT spending previously included in non-IT accounts.
