Federal IT projects fail at an alarming rate. The total cost to the U.S. economy? According to my calculations, at least $200 billion per year. This editorial that I wrote is reprinted from the Perspectives of the International Association of Software Architects (January 2009). It is an in-depth analysis of why so many Federal IT systems are in trouble and what steps the Obama administration needs to take to control this problem.
