Letter: CBO ignores added costs to FISMA change
Regarding "FISMA bill could add $150 million to agencies' costs
Of course the Congressional Budget Office estimate ignores the significant additional, albeit indirect and hard to quantify, costs resulting from changing Federal Information Security Management Act horses midstream (agencies and National Institute of Standards and Technology have already invested significant funds in old FISMA).
Moreover, great inefficiencies are introduced due to inevitable conflicts between the new chief information security officer council and its guidance and that of other bodies and agencies.
