Governing the people: Advanced solutions needed
In recent years, federal government agencies have begun leveraging more technologically advanced solutions in order to support their processes and provide better services for citizens. Now, more federal government activities than ever take place with the support of IT solutions, and this trend isn’t expected to change anytime soon.
“Most of the federal government’s programs and activities are heavily dependent on information technology,” said Gene Dodaro, Comptroller General and U.S. Government Accountability Office Chief.
That being said, federal government organizations have very specialized needs when it comes to their IT systems. iT1 Source is the only technology partner that can help government institutions proactively address their technology requirements.
Legacy IT can’t keep up: Updates needed
Legacy technology is one of the top pain points that today’s government agencies are facing. These aging systems provide the backbone for a range of critical processes. At the same time, however, outdated IT solutions can hamper federal departments’ ability to address the needs of constituents in an efficient and timely fashion.
The issue is often worse than many think. For instance, some federal government departments are still utilizing floppy disks and solutions relying on 1950s computer code.
The GAO recommends that government agencies prioritize processes to modernize and replace legacy IT systems, showing the critical need for upgrades.
Cost considerations with rising IT budgets
At the same time, however, government agencies must also be aware of their budget when selecting new solutions. For years, institutions dealt with unchanging – or even decreasing – federal IT budgets, making updates incredibly difficult.
In recent years, though, federal IT spending has considerably increased thanks to boosted budget allocations. Spending on IT solutions has increased 1.8 percent on average each year, and it’s estimated that the federal government will spend $88.7 billion in 2016, and nearly $90 billion in 2017.
As IT budgets and spending continue to modestly increase, it’s important that decision-makers plan their expenses carefully, ensuring they get the best return on investment.
Making information more available
In addition to ensuring technology is in place to support staff processes, federal agencies also have a responsibility to make certain information available for citizens. Details about federally sponsored health care plans as well as Freedom of Information requests must be handled carefully, and advanced technology can only help these efforts.
