Image of a cloud shaped like a brain As a part of the Cloud Smart strategy, OMB has posted for public feedback a draft memorandum to replace M-16-19. Comments will be accepted through December 26, 2018.

The Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) established in OMB Memorandum M-16-19 supercedes the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI) and fulfills the data center requirements of the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA).

DCOI requires agencies to optimize and consolidate data centers to deliver better services to the public while increasing return-on-investment to taxpayers.
