The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has created a series of data visualizations to accompany the release of federal agency information technology (IT) performance metrics for the first quarter of 2015. The metrics assess how well agencies meet federal chief information officer Tony Scott’s core objectives of driving value in IT investments, ensuring high quality digital services, and protecting federal assets and information. OMB has made these metrics publicly available for the first time to introduce more transparency into federal IT spending, and it eventually plans to expand the metrics and visualizations to illustrate agency progress in new ways.
