The General Services Administration (GSA) is working with the Office of the Federal CIO of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to finalize the launch date for its modernized Federal IT Dashboard, which is now scheduled for launch at mid-March.
A GSA spokesperson told MeriTalk today that the launch of the dashboard will likely come after the fiscal year (AF) capital planning and investment control submission window closes. Dashboard data will not be available until then.
“An internal launch took place in September 2021, and GSA is looking forward to the public launch which is scheduled for mid-March,” the spokesperson said.
OMB’s old IT dashboard was created in 2009 by OFCIO, but this system was based on outdated technology, leading to increased maintenance costs and performance issues. This new dashboard is designed to use modern development practices, ensuring an easy-to-use site.
The new dashboard was also developed using human-centered design (HCD), which aligns with President Biden’s Executive Order (EO) on Federal Customer Experience Transformation, as it places “GSA user capabilities, needs and preferences central to development”. to treat.”
GSA teams worked on the dashboard project with a broad group of stakeholders, identified opportunities for improvement through surveys and interviews, tested feedback with wireframes and mockups, and integrated the American web design system and accessibility standards.
