Civilian agencies see small increases in fiscal '07 IT budget

"The IT budgets for civilian agencies account for almost one-half, or $33.8 billion, of the $64.3 billion for all federal IT. Excluding the Homeland Security Department, civilian IT budgets are less than $30 billion.

The administration seeks a $40 million increase, to $298 million, for HUD. Two projects account for most of the increase. HUD plans to implement a financial management system under the Financial Management Line of Business and integrate its legacy systems supporting single-family home mortgages.

Among other agencies, the Commerce Department received a 7 percent boost, with systems for the 2010 Census taking most of the increase along with the department’s integrated financial management system.

The Health and Human Services Department would receive a 4.7 percent increase, with increases in its financial management and integrated procurement systems.

Transportation’s IT budget edged up 1.1 percent on increases in its departmentwide procurement consolidation under the Prism contract management system."
