CHAPTER 12, PART 1
SECURITY REQUIREMENTS FOR CPIC
The Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996 requires that Federal agencies institute a disciplined approach to managing and controlling Information Technology (IT) investments. The Office of Management and Budget updated Circular A-130, “Management of Federal Information Resources” also mandates the disciplines of Capital Planning and Investment Control (CPIC) and information system security. These requirements, combined with the newly enacted Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), have now established a clear and convincing need for a systematic capital planning and investment process in each USDA agency and staff office.
