This goal will:   improve business, financial, and acquisition outcomes; enable Federal executives to make data-driven decisions and analyze trade-offs between cost, quality, and value of IT investments; reduce agency burden for reporting IT budget, spend, and performance data by automating the use of authoritative data sources; and enable IT benchmarking across Federal Government agencies and with other public and private sector organizations.
The Federal Government spends at least $90 billion
annually on IT, and Federal executives have long known they could better manage that spending
with increased visibility and more accurate data. Congress and taxpayers have pressed for better information about how Federal IT dollars
are spent and the return on that investment. The FY 2018 President’s Budget reported 84% of the
total Federal IT budget categorized as “other,” as opposed to being clearly tied to a specific IT category
of spend. This lack of granularity makes it difficult to baseline Federal investments and show
the public whether Government is spending taxpayer dollars effectively in order to drive the large
scale change needed to improve business transformation and citizen services. In the spring of
2017, Office of Management and Budget guidance called on agencies to begin adopting elements of
the Technology Business Management framework - an open source standard for IT costs. This will
provide more granularity in IT spend based upon a taxonomy broadly accepted across both private
and public sector organizations.
The TBM Framework will enable the Federal
Government to:   run IT like a business; drive innovation and business transformation; improve services to citizens; add cost transparency; and increase accountability to taxpayers.

The Federal government spends at least $90 billion annually on IT. The announcement of the President’s Management Agenda included a cross-agency priority goal specifically focused on increasing transparency in spend and performance metrics associated with IT across the enterprise. The adoption of the Technology Business Management (TBM) Framework will provide more granularity in IT investments based upon an open-source taxonomy broadly accepted across both private and public sector organizations.
