+ - US Cybersecurity Bill Amendment Pushes Government Datacenter Consolidation

Submitted by vivIsel
vivIsel (450550) writes "As the 2012 Cybersecurity bill begins to take shape, there's at least one bipartisan provision in the offing: Senate Democrat Michael Bennet and Republican Tom Coburn have offered up an amendment that pushes federal agencies to consolidate duplicative datacenters.

There's already a Federal Datacenter Consolidation Initiative in the works — one that the Government Accountability Office estimates would save $2 billion by 2015 — but agencies have been slow to act. The Bennet-Coburn amendment would set a timeline and require agencies to report back on their progress. Seems like a no-brainer — and for once, both Democrats and Republicans (along with GAO, which has publicly called for legislation along these lines) agree on that."
