On January 16, 2001, OMB issued OMB Memorandum M-01-08, Guidance to Agencies on implementing the Security Act. That guidance directed agency heads to transmit to OMB in September, 2001, contemporaneous with their FY 2003 budget materials, copies of the annual agency program reviews, independent evaluations, and for national security systems, audits of the independent evaluations. In addition to the program reviews and evaluations, agency heads were also to provide a brief executive summary, not to exceed 15 pages, developed by the agency Chief Information Officer, agency program officials, and the Inspector General that was based on the results of their work. These executive summaries will serve as the primary basis for OMB's summary report to Congress. Instructions for completing the executive summary are detailed in this document.
