OMB Web site charts government IT spending

Agencies to update cost, schedule and performance figures monthly

The Office of Management and Budget launched a Web site today that uses colorful pie charts, bar charts and raw data to share information with the public about how federal agencies are spending money on information technology, White House officials announced.

Federal Chief Information Officer Vivek Kundra introduced the site, IT Dashboard, today at the Personal Democracy Forum conference in New York City.

The dashboard’s homepage displays the federal government’s entire IT portfolio organized by agency in a bar chart. Users can click on the individual agencies on the chart to get more detailed financial and performance information.

Web links are associated with elements on the new Web site so the public can embed charts and other information onto their own Web sites, according to OMB. Agencies will update cost, schedule and performance figures monthly on the dashboard, according to OMB.

The dashboard also provides news and updates on the progress of technology investment and the availability of new data.
