House Assigns IT, Government Operations Oversight to Single Panel

1 min read

The House plans to combine the subcommittees that handle information technology oversight and government operations to help in technology modernization across the government, FCW reported Tuesday.

The decision comes amid the growing number of government operations relying on IT, Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., said in a statement. 

"Federal IT is helping us deliver some of the most important functions and services our government provides to the public,” he said. 

The new panel will work under the House Oversight and Reform Committee. In an earlier interview with Government Matters, Connolly noted that the combined subcommittee will handle efforts modernizing how the government deals with IT and procurement of technologies.
