Richard Spires, former Chief Information Officer at the Department of Homeland Security and CEO of Learning Tree International, discusses the low grades in the latest FITARA scorecard, and the reasons for the drop.


The latest Federal IT Acquisition scorecard has some CIOs worried. Out of 24 agencies, 11 had their scores drop from the previous report. The biggest slip came from USAID, which went from an ‘A’ to a ‘C-’ in six months. The low grades at agencies have some discussing FITARA’s merits, while others debate its future.   “I believe the scorecard is actually quite valuable,” said Richard Spires, CEO of Learning Tree International. “You need a way to measure progress, and I think having a scorecard from Congress as an independent body looking over the administration, and a bipartisan effort is a very positive thing.”
