❝2019 is going to be a great year for citizen and mission results delivered through enabling technology advances.❞

  • Reduce the time for the Federal Government's processing of environmental reviews and authorization decisions for new major infrastructure projects to an average of two years. Provide consistent, coordinated, and predictable Federal environmental reviews and authorization processes for infrastructure projects.
  • The challenge includes: limited accountability for achieving enterprise-wide outcomes that enhance IT service effectiveness and reduce cybersecurity risks; slow adoption of cutting edge commercial technologies due to onerous acquisition and authorization processes; and federal agencies employ patchwork network architectures and rely on legacy systems that are costly and difficult to secure and upgrade.
  • Infrastructure investment strengthens our economic platform, makes America more competitive, creates jobs, increases wages for American workers, and reduces the costs of goods and services for American families and consumers.
