U.S. Chief Information Officer Steven VanRoekel told senators Thursday that IT acquisition reform measures should focus on outcomes rather than just methodology, Nextgov reported Thursday.

Rebecca Carroll writes that the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee held a hearing Thursday to discuss strategies for federal agencies to build and procure IT systems.

“Many of the best practices you see here are really about comprehensive management, and that’s probably the hardest thing to legislate,” he told the panel, according to Nextgov.

Carroll reports that VanRoekel urged agency IT leaders and legislators to explore “what kinds of outcomes we’re trying to drive versus what are the tactical ways we’re going to get these.”

VanRoekel has unveiled a guidance document for the PortfolioStat program, which aims to help agencies evaluate and manage IT investments.
