Office of Technology Assessment, Federal Government Information Technology: Management, Security, and Congressional Oversight (Feb. 1986) (full-text).

Overview Edit

The primary focus of this report is on the management, use, and congressional oversight of information technology in the Federal Government. Rapid advances in technology — such as microcomputers, computer networking, computer modeling, videoconferencing, and electronic information exchange — are generating many new applications, opportunities, and issues that warrant congressional attention.

The report addresses five major areas: 1) management of information technology, including strategic planning, innovation, procurement, and the information resources management (IRM) concept; 2) information systems security and computer crime; 3) information technology and decision support; 4) management of government information dissemination; and 5) opportunities for using information technology in conducting congressional oversight.
