Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) said preliminary scores show that no agency will get an F or a D rating in the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act scorecard, Nextgov reported Monday.

Jamie Smith, the lawmaker’s communications director, told the publication that the FITARA scores of the 24 agencies are set to be finalized Tuesday, July 21, after a meeting with the Government Accountability Office in preparation for the biannual FITARA hearing on July 30.

Connolly said Monday at a hearing of the House Oversight Subcommittee on Government Operations that the FITARA scorecard grades show that federal agencies have been making great strides when it comes to IT modernization since the law’s implementation in 2015.

He also cited during the hearing the need for the federal government to update legacy IT systems.
