Information Technology: Digital Service Programs Need to Consistently Coordinate on Developing Guidance for Agencies

1 Open Recommendations
Agency Recommendation Status
U.S. Digital Service The Director of OMB should direct the Administrator of USDS to work with the Executive Director of 18F to establish and document an approach to coordinate on the IT guidance they provide to agencies. (Recommendation 1)

In March 2022, OMB stated that USDS and GSA's Technology Transformation Services, which is the office that oversees 18F, were meeting to develop new processes to ensure future coordination between the two programs. OMB also said that it would provide an update when the new processes are established. We will continue to monitor the agencies' efforts to implement this recommendation.
