digital governmentThe Senate’s Financial Services and General Government appropriations bill for fiscal year 2015 contains initiatives designed to help agencies procure and utilize information technology, FCW reported Monday.

Alan Balutis, a senior director at Cisco, writes that one provision would give federal chief information officers authority to decide on IT spending plans.

Another measure seeks additional tools to ensure that agencies’ IT investments are disclosed and updated on the federal IT Dashboard site, according to Balutis.

The bill also requires a quarterly progress report on electronic health record interoperability between the departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs.

Balutis added the legislation calls for a new program to encourage more companies to pursue federal IT contracts.
