The Senate has passed a bill that would require agencies to continue to report data center inventory, conduct PortfolioStat reviews and share data via a federal information technology dashboard, Nextgov reported Friday.
The FITARA Enhancement Act now awaits President Donald Trump’s signature.
Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Virginia) told Nextgov the passage of the bill is a key step for agencies to realize FITARA’s full potential and comply with data center consolidation requirements.
“Congress is willing to be a partner in meeting these goals but we will also continue to hold agencies accountable,” Connolly added.
House members passed the bill in October through a 418-0 vote.
