Federal IT COST Commission
FEDERAL COMMISSION ON IT COST, OPPORTUNITY, STRATEGY AND TRANSPARENCY (IT COST)What is the Federal IT COST Commission?
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 composed of the world’s largest enterprise organizations and Federal CIOs, led by the TBM Council. This initiative aimed at leveraging private sector best practices in technology cost management and applying 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.
