On the table

Highlights of the Federal Information Policy Act:

* Creates the Office of Information Policy, headed by a chief information

officer of the United States, who will report directly to the president

and work with the Office of Management and Budget to coordinate federal

information technology funding decisions.

* Centralizes responsibility for all federal information resources and

management issues in the OIP except for implementation of the Paperwork

Reduction Act, which will remain the single area of responsibility for the

OMB Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.

* Creates an Office of Information Security and Technical Protection

within the OIP to coordinate all federal information security resources,

standards and budgets.

* Formally establishes the federal CIO Council by law rather than

executive order and requires annual reports to Congress.
