The Federal IT COST Commission
What is the Federal Commission on IT Cost, Opportunity, Strategy, and Transparency?
The Federal IT COST Commission is the first-ever joint public/private sector initiative focused on maximizing the value of the government’s technology investments through transparency into spending. This CIO advisory council is comprised of the world’s largest enterprise organizations and Federal CIOs, led by the TBM Council. This initiative aims to leverage private sector best practices in technology cost management and apply them to the Federal setting to ensure taxpayer money is being used as efficiently as possible.
As part of this effort, the Commission will define a set of best practices and standards for Federal CIOs to measure and communicate the cost of infrastructure, applications, projects, and IT services.
