Robert Rovinsky, senior adviser at the Department of Commerce, discusses the importance of communication between agency CIOs and leadership to the FITARA Scorecard.


Work has already begun on the next Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act scorecard. After the recent low grades, agencies are looking to improve their scores wherever possible. David Powner recently told Government Matters that having the CIO report directly to the agency head would immediately improve grades. Robert Rovinsky, Senior Adviser at the Department of Commerce, said that the provision is incredibly important to the FITARA committee.   “They actually were thinking at one point of making it 50% of the FITARA scorecard, but this time they’ve dropped every agency that doesn’t have the CIO reporting to the head of the agency or the deputy one full grade,” said Rovinsky. “Ultimately, FITARA is all about the authority of the CIO, and without the ability for the CIO to report directly and talk directly to the head of the agency, Congress feels that it’s simply not going to do what it’s supposed to do.”
