The bipartisan leadership of the House Government Operations Subcommittee recently introduced a bill that would ensure Federal agency CIOs are involved into the process of how agency leaders develop performance plans for their organizations.
The bill would require agency performance plans to “include descriptions of technology modernization investments, system upgrades, staff technology skills and expertise, stakeholder input and feedback, and other resources to meet the agency’s performance goals,” the subcommittee said.
The Performance Enhancement Reform Act introduced by subcommittee Chairman Gerry Connolly (D-Va) and Ranking Member Jody Hice (R-Ga) would amend existing regulations to require Federal Agency Chief Performance Improvement Officers to collaborate with CIOs, CDOs, CFOs, and Chief Human Capital Officers when creating annual performance plans.
