Department of Health and Human Services
HHS sought to improve its program management and execution as well as its strategic use of IT. In addition, the HHS needed support to ensure its compliance with a wide range of regulations, including FITARA and the MEGABYTE Act of 2016. The office also wanted solutions that support the use of data to drive informed, sound decisions.
Octo provided management and subject matter expertise to improve OCIO’s performance. We streamlined the portfolio management process to guide the agency’s transition to Agile, developed implementation roadmaps to comply with legislative requirements, developed the IT Strategic plan, and assisted with Shared Services implementation.
By developing and executing an implementation plan for FITARA scorecard improvement, HHS successfully increased their score from a D- to a B+. This resulted in an organizational and cultural shift in environment. We also designed and implemented an Agile IT strategy, ensuring the agency realizes the full benefits of IT.
