MGT Act passes Senate as amendment to NDAA – Fedscoop
The Modernizing Government Technology Act passed the Senate on Monday as an amendment to the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act.
The Senate’s version of the IT legislation, sponsored by Jerry Moran, R-Kansas, and Tom Udall, D-N.M., also passed the House in May as a companion bill authored by Rep. Will Hurd, R-Texas.
The bill proposes to allow agencies to put money saved through IT efficiencies into working capital funds, which can be accessed for up to three years, to fund efforts to modernize their technology. It also would create a centralized fund agencies can tap into for modernization.
