GSA Policy for Information Technology (IT) Capital Planning and Investment Control (CPIC)

Purpose: This Order establishes agency-wide policies, roles and responsibilities for GSA’s IT Capital Planning and Investment Control (CPIC) process. CPIC is an integrated management process for the continuous selection, control, and evaluation of IT investments over their life cycles and is focused on achieving desired outcomes in support of GSA’s missions, goals, and objectives. The term “IT investment” by definition from OMB as a project or projects for the development, modernization, enhancement, or maintenance of a single IT asset or group of IT assets with related functionality, and the subsequent operation of those assets in a production environment. (June 2018, FY2020 IT Budget guidance https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/fy-2020-it-budget-guidance.pdf) GSA’s CPIC process must be closely aligned to GSA IT’s governance, enterprise architecture (EA), IT security, IT acquisition, strategic planning, and capital budgeting processes. This Order updates GSA’s CPIC policy, making it consistent with the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act of 2013 (FITARA) and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) guidance.
