A group of seven tech associations is calling for the Senate to prioritize funding in the next potential coronavirus relief package for federal IT modernization and cybersecurity programs such as the Technology Modernization Fund and Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation.
While many federal CIOs have responded to the COVID-19 crisis “commendably,” there is still a critical need for IT modernization and cybersecurity funding as the pandemic continues — and some areas see a spike in positive cases — the associations wrote in a letter Monday to Senate leaders Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and others.
The Information Technology Industry Council (ITI), Alliance for Digital Innovation (ADI), BSA | The Software Alliance, the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA), the Center for Procurement Advocacy, Internet Association (IA), and the Cybersecurity Coalition signed the letter.
