The Obama Administration has created a Data Center Consolidation Task Force, which
|“||is comprised of the data center consolidation program managers from each agency. According to its charter, the Task Force is critical to supporting collaboration across the FDCCI agencies, including identifying and disseminating key pieces of information, solutions, and processes that will help agencies in their consolidation efforts.||”|
The Task Force is responsible for working together to share progress toward individual agency goals and the overall Federal target of a minimum of 800 data center closures by 2015. The Task Force will meet monthly to review progress of each consolidation project and ensure government-wide alignment between agency efforts where appropriate. The Task Force will serve as a "community of practice" for agency CIOs and data center program managers to share best practices from this effort and enhance consolidation effectiveness.
