Technology is a vital contributor to the effective and efficient mission execution of all government agencies. Is your agency’s IT organization able to effectively deliver for the mission? Are you improving with every FITARA scorecard? Using an IT Management Maturity Model developed by subject matter experts from the American Council for Technology – Industry Advisory Council (ACT-IAC), in response to a request by OMB, this FITARA Implementation course will teach you how to assess and improve your agency’s IT organizational maturity and ability to deliver new capabilities for your agency. This Maturity Model is being used by several agencies already to help drive value in Federal IT investments, deliver efficient services, and protect Federal IT assets and information.
