IT Capital Planning & Budget
Capital Planning and Investment Control (CPIC) is an approach to managing IT investments. CPIC makes sure that IT investments line up with the IHS mission, goals, and objectives, and supports business needs, while minimizing risks and maximizing returns throughout the investment's life cycle. CPIC relies on systematic selection, control, and continual evaluation processes to ensure meeting investment objectives.
Investments in IT can enhance organizational performance. When carefully managed, IT can improve business processes, make information widely available, and reduce the cost of providing essential Government services. As IT rapidly evolves, the challenge of realizing its potential benefits also becomes much greater.
