OMB expands technology consolidation effort

"The Office of Management and Budget is pressing forward with its effort to consolidate and centralize federal information technology systems, despite admitting that not all the details are resolved.

OMB last week kicked off three governmentwide task forces to review additional areas -- called 'lines of business' -- it has deemed potentially ripe for consolidation.

The areas that will be examined are: IT infrastructure, geospatial systems, and systems for budget formulation and execution. Previous line of business task forces formed by OMB have recommended that agencies shut down individual IT systems and instead buy services from a handful of government agencies appointed as service providers, or from the private sector.
