HUD will measure success of IT projects

NEW ORLEANS'The Department of Housing and Urban Development is using metrics to evaluate the success of its IT projects within the agency's mission.

Gloria Parker, CIO of HUD, said yesterday that every current system and all future systems will be held to these standards.

'We want to make sure the technology investment is viable,' she said at the Federation of Government Information Processing Council's Management of Change Conference. 'In the past, we measured how it operated, but we need to see how the technology relates to our mission.'

The standards would help decide whether projects are continued, ended or changed to better meet HUD's mission, Parker said.

'We will have to meet certain parts of the criteria along the way,' she said. 'We will monitor and evaluate the project to understand how it is working.'

Parker said the metrics would be finished in August and would be applied departmentwide.
