Expert Panelists Discuss President Obama's 25-Point Plan
Senate Hearing on Tuesday, April 12

You’re invited to join us on Tuesday, April 12 as Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del) holds an open hearing entitled “Examining the President’s Plan for Eliminating Wasteful Spending in Information Technology<>.” With more than $80 billion spent on IT each year and the increasingly critical role of IT in serving the needs of the American people, wasteful spending practices cannot continue. The hearing will take a deeper look at the efforts of the Obama Administration to curb the Federal IT budget. Panels comprised of Federal and industry experts will deliver testimony on President Obama’s 25-Point Plan and examine progress being made on implementation.
