The Office of Management and Budget is requiring agencies to choose two commodity technology services and move them to shared-service providers by December 2012. While giving agencies a hard deadline, OMB is telling industry the shared-services strategy released last week still is in draft form and open for public comment.

OMB circulated to agencies — not publicly — a more detailed draft shared-services strategy in November outlining specific steps agencies and OMB will take over the next year.

The shared-services requirement was one of five IT policy areas OMB highlighted in the IT budget passback, obtained by Federal News Radio.

OMB also outlined a new performance-management line of business, requirements to calculate cloud computing and data-center consolidation savings and a continued investment in the current e-government, line of business, cybersecurity, Data.gov and several other initiatives.
