Facing FITARA Challenges

The federal government is spending over $80 billion per year on its information technology (IT), but estimates say as much as $20 billion of this is wasted through poorly managed acquisition and implementation.

Enter FITARA. The goal of the Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA), enacted on December 19, 2014, is to mitigate this problem by enabling federal entities to acquire IT in ways that save money, maximize return on investment, reduce operational risk, and improve services to citizens.

This infographic examines the state of FITARA implementation in government, using public data and the results from GovLoop’s survey of over 150 public sector employees.
