Letter: What does FISMA scorecard actually assess?

Regarding "Justice IG finds IT security vulnerabilities"

If the Federal Information Security Management Act scorecard doesn't assess actual security of the information technology environment, then what does it really assess?

There should be a recommendation to the Office of Management and Budget and the National Institute of Standards and Technology to align the FISMA scorecard with true measures of information technology security.
