OIG: NASA Chief Information Officer Is Doing A Crappy Job, earlier post (2017 OIG report)

"In the 4 years since issuance of our IT governance report and the 3 years since completion of its own internal review, the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) has made insufficient progress to improve NASA's IT governance, casting doubt on the office's ability to effectively oversee the Agency's IT assets. Specifically, the NASA Chief Information Officer (CIO) continues to have limited visibility into IT investments across the Agency and the process NASA developed to correct this shortcoming is flawed."

Agencies Need to Improve Certification of Incremental Development, GAO

"... Among the reported investments, we identified 166 investments undertaking software development activities in which at least 50 percent or more of funding was allocated to development, modernization, and enhancement activities. For each of these investments, we assessed the status of reported certifications by the CIOs of the respective agencies. [Three agencies, NASA, NSF, and NRC, did not have any investments that met this criteria for fiscal year 2017.]"
