Submission + - US Cybersecurity Bill Amendment Pushes Government Datacenter Consolidation

vivIsel 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.
