The consolidation of Federal energy programs in the Department of Energy (DOE) necessitates the defining and consolidating of information needs and resources.

DOE has not done enough to consolidate and organize its information processing resources. The Department has (1) divided the responsibility for the control of information processing activities among three organizations, (2) not pinpointed responsibility for control of information resources at contractor sites, (3) not established mechanisms to coordinate controls over acquisition and use of computer equipment with development of computer programs, and (4) not conducted a detailed agencywide analysis of its information needs and resources. DOE control over computer equipment acquisitions could be the starting point for more integrated controls over information collection and processing, but some deficiencies should be corrected.
