The 2018-2022 Information Resource Management (IRM) Strategy fulfills an OMB requirement and lays out the path forward for DOE to modernize the department’s Information Technology (IT) and cybersecurity (cyber) infrastructure to deliver high quality IT and cybersecurity solutions, provide exemplary service to stakeholders and users, and excel as stewards of taxpayer dollars. This Information Resources Management (IRM) Strategy fulfills that task and will guide the direction, focus, mission alignment, principles, investments, and accountability of DOE’s IT infrastructure.

Through a coordinated effort to obtain buy-in from across the DOE enterprise, the IRM has already produced tangible results. For example, the National Archives and Records Administration has accepted the IRM and closed out an inspection finding that has been pending for 5 years.
