FITARA scorecard evolves, scores go up

The newest edition of the FITARA scorecard shows seven agencies increased their scores, 17 agencies held steady, and no agencies went down. The latest edition of the scorecard includes new cyber metrics. Federal CISO Chris DeRusha, USAID CIO Jason Gray (whose agency was the only one to get an A on the scorecard) and GAO Directors Carol Harris and Jennifer Franks testified about the new scorecard at a hearing of the House Oversight and Reform Government Operations subcommittee Thursday.

Part One of this episode includes questions for the witnesses from Rep. Shontel Brown (D-OH); ranking member Jody Hice (R-GA); Chairman Gerry Connolly (D-VA); and Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA).

Part Two features one of the architects of the FITARA scorecard, David Powner, former Director at GAO and now Executive Director of the Center for Data-Driven Policy at MITRE. He was also part of the team that developed recommendations for updating the scorecard for ACT-IAC.
