DHS creates fund to pay for IT consolidation

HERSHEY, Pa.'The Homeland Security Department will set up a working capital fund to pay for its IT infrastructure consolidation work.

CIO Steve Cooper said late last month the Homeland Security Department Financial Accountability Act, HR 4259, permits the department to use funding from each directorate to pay for intra-agency projects.

'We are working with the Chief Financial Officer's Office on the formula for how much each directorate will pay and what they will pay for,' Cooper said at the 14th annual Executive Leadership Conference sponsored by the Industry Advisory Council and the American Council for Technology.

Cooper said his office will release the first set of requests for proposals for infrastructure consolidation work by early January.
