OMB restates fiscal 2008 IT budget request

The Office of Management and Budget restated the federal government’s information technology budget today, raising the fiscal 2008 request by almost $1 billion.

Every spring, usually by April, the Bush administration recalculates its IT budget after receiving missing data from agencies. The administration’s IT budget request for 2008 rose to $66.4 billion, up from the initial estimate of $65.5 billion in February.

In all, eight agencies saw their requests rise, 10 saw their requests fall and nine stayed the same under the reconfigured numbers.

...the Veterans Affairs Department, requested $47.9 million for its financial and logistics integrated technology enterprise program — more than $27 million more than in 2007.

The FY2008 Financial Systems IT Budget total for the Federal government comes just under $1.97 Billion.
