You’ve got to feel for OMB. They were originally given a near impossible task regarding the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI) and have done an admirable job of establishing guidelines and goals. They had no power to force anyone to follow it, and probably rightly so. But after a recent Government Accountability Office (GAO) report, and a push by the administration, they have had to release a new set of guidelines that changes the landscape of FDCCI. It’s really a policy reversal.
