The Agency for Digital Government’s new model for portfolio management of governmental IT-systems has made it obligatory for government agencies to map their IT-system portfolio and have it reviewed by the Agency for Governmental IT Services. At Peak we have recruited some of the country’s leading experts in this field, and we are ready to help you with the entire process.
Government agencies with IT-expenses above 30 million DKK or systems which are critical to society in their IT-portfolio, must be reviewed by the Agency for Governmental IT Services. This is to ensure that the portfolio adheres to the government’s model for IT-portfolio management, whose purpose is to create a better overview of government agencies’ critical IT-systems. The model consists of three different phases as part of a three-year cycle, with the purpose of creating exactly this overview. The different phases consist of:
Mapping of the IT-system portfolio: based on 6 different mapping-dimensions an overview is created of intern and extern parameters for the agency’s IT-system portfolio.
IT plan of action: The IT plan of action is a document that will take the future into account. This means that the agency must be forward-looking and take any potential future problems that may arise in relation to the IT-system portfolio into account.
Review with the Agency for Governmental IT Services: The collected information is forwarded to the Agency for Governmental IT Services for review. In connection with the review, there will often be other changes and processes to go through.
Why do you have to follow the model?
Following the model for the government’s IT-portfolio management is obligatory for agencies with IT-expenses exceeding 30 million DKK. The same applies to reviews with the Agency for Governmental IT Services and this is with good reason. You see, there are many benefits to be had, for example:
- You conform to compliance and legal requirements.
- You achieve insight into the strengths and weaknesses of your IT landscape.
- You get at your technical debt.
- Potential IT cost reductions in the long term.
