The Defense Department says it has a departmentwide information technology plan that will allow flexible adoption of emerging technology while taking “appropriate actions” for projects that are “not producing.” The IT Enterprise Strategy and Roadmap (.pdf) provides some clarity into IT’s role in DoD’s Efficiency Initiative and reveals plans for saving between $3.2 billion and $5.2 billion over the next 5 years.

The strategy document says the efforts have already produced results, with “a direct budget reduction of $1.7 billion across the FYDP in the FY2012 DoD submission to the President’s Budget through specific IT consolidation actions by the Air Force ($1.2 billion) and the Army ($500 million).”
