Major Information Systems

The Electronic Freedom of Information Act of 1996 requires agencies to make available to the public an index and description of their major information systems.

The Office of Management and Budget defines major information systems as an information system that requires special management attention because of its importance to an agency mission; its high development, operating, or maintenance costs; or its significant role in the administration of agency programs, finances, property, or other resources.

Details concerning the Department’s Major information systems, as well as other information technology investments, are posted on the Federal IT Dashboard.
