Interior Wants OMB to Referee Dispute Over its IT Security
Interior secretary Gale Norton disagrees with her departmentís inspector general that the department does not meet federal security requirements and has asked the Office of Management and Budget to clarify its interpretation of those requirements.
Interior certified and accredited more than 98 percent of its systems in fiscal 2005 to comply with the Federal Information Security Management Act. During the year, Interior also made progress in consolidating 13 networks into a single departmental enterprise services network, with strong network perimeter security controls. The three remaining bureau networks are undergoing consolidation now, she said in a letter to OMB director Joshua Bolten last month.
