This post is part of a continuing DBR on Data series on Executive Order 13800 and updates on its implementation a year after passage.
Strengthening federal information technology (IT) has been one of the priorities of the current administration, as outlined in the May 2017 Executive Order 13800. As summarized in our previous blog, the Director of the American Technology Council (ATC) was tasked, among other things, to coordinate the preparation of a report to the president regarding modernization of federal IT infrastructure. The draft report was made available for public comment in August, and finalized in December 2017. The final report’s implementation clock started on January 1, 2018.
