The Department of Energy (DOE) enhances national security and economic strength through transformative science, technology innovation, and market solutions to meet U.S. energy, nuclear security, and environmental challenges. Information resources, both information and the technology that supports its use, are critical to the Department’s success. DOE’s Research & Development (R&D) computing capabilities are world renowned. The Department played a critical role in the foundation of the Internet and has been a steward for some of the world’s most powerful computers and fastest networks. This implementation plan is designed to optimize information resources and improve DOE’s ability to deliver energy and security breakthroughs.

DOE’s Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA) Implementation Plan and Self-Assessment lays the framework to advance the Department’s mission. The development of this plan was a collaborative effort across the DOE Enterprise, led by the Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Chief Acquisition Officer (CAO), Chief Information Officer (CIO), and Chief Human Capital Officer (CHCO) with contribution from Departmental elements in science, national security, energy, and environment. DOE’s mission is accomplished through strategic partnerships with academia, the private sector, and others with mutual interest.
