The Environmental Protection Agency will invest more in IT integration to 'better use environmental data to make decisions, set priorities and achieve agency goals,' CIO Kimberly T. Nelson said.
In her two years at EPA, Nelson said, 'an enterprise architecture has been one of my highest priorities. The baseline shows everything in place now. The sequencing plan shows where we will go in the future, how we will build out and how we will do the integrations.' She spoke this month at a breakfast hosted by Input of Reston, Va.
Input has estimated that EPA will spend $370 million on IT this year and will push systems spending to $570 million by fiscal 2008.
