Last week, I joined the Federal CIO, Vivek Kundra, as he unveiled 25 new management principles that will help drive value for Federal technology users, stakeholders, and taxpayers.

OMB recently established government-wide policies associated with financial systems modernization. In response, IBM looked at our own work in delivering financial management services, and developed a set of principles for how best to deploy financial systems in alignment with OMB’s goals.
