The IT Dashboard is a website enabling Federal agencies, industry, the general public, and other stakeholders to view details of Federal information technology investments. Agency Chief Information Officers (CIO) are responsible for evaluating and updating select data on a regular basis, which is accomplished through interfaces provided by the IT Dashboard.
From the list below, select the name of the agency whose data you wish to view. If you are interested in seeing the information technology investments for the entire government, then select the Government-wide View to see all.
This document is a companion to Chapter 17 of the Analytical Perspectives volume of this budget, and provides the Information Technology (IT) portfolios discussed in the The President’s Budget for Fiscal Year 2017.
Government-wide IT spending refers to the total budgetary resources based on development, modernization, and enhancement (DME) and operations and maintenance (O&M) services for the current fiscal year.
This tool can be used to download snapshots of IT Dashboard data into CSV, XML, JSON formats. The source of the data is from the IT Budget and Business Case data sets. The IT Budget data set is a combination of every agency’s IT Budget. The Business Case data set is a combination of every agency’s Business Case.
PortfolioStat is a tool for agencies to use to assess the current maturity of their IT portfolio management process and make decisions on eliminating duplication across their organizations.
PortfolioStat was launched by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on March 30, 2012.
IT Performance Metrics are up-to-date measurements and visualizations tracking agency progress on the Federal CIO’s three core objectives for the Federal IT Portfolio:
PortfolioStat consists of a data-driven yearly review of agency portfolio management between the Federal Chief Information Officer (CIO) and senior agency officials. In addition to helping agencies achieve financial savings through reform efforts, PortfolioStat analyzes agency progress using a variety of performance metrics designed to measure whether agencies are delivering their IT investments on budget and on schedule, driving innovation to meet customer needs, and adequately protecting Federal IT Assets and Information.
Within the first year of using this tool, agencies identified $2.5 billion in savings opportunities. To date, agencies have reported over $2.57 billion in PortfolioStat-related savings, putting the government ahead of its target. As part of its ongoing commitment to transparency, OMB recently made IT Performance Metrics used in PortfolioStat sessions public.
Prioritizing these three objectives helps to build upon successes from key initiatives such as PortfolioStat, the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI), the launch of the U.S. Digital Service, and shifting to more agile development practices. OMB uses these performance metrics in data-driven discussions with agencies to assess agency performance and progress in each of our priority areas. Sharing these publicly expands this work by allowing anyone to track the progress that the Federal IT portfolio is making and is a part of our commitment to openness and transparency in government.
In response to high demand from Federal agencies and the software development community, we plan to make the source code of the IT Dashboard available to the public soon. This first open source release will represent a starting point, enabling communities of interest to adapt and mature their own versions of the Dashboard to their own unique needs. We invite suggestions and contributions from the user community, the software development community and the general public.
