Harris: DoD’s Joint Information Environment scope, cost still up in the air

The Pentagon’s Joint Information Environment will be the department’s IT backbone when the JIE is complete. It’s been a work in progress, though, since 2010. And the department has some challenges in getting the most out of the technology it’s building, and the money it’s spending. Carol Harris is Director of Information Technology Acquisition Management Issues at the Government Accountability Office. She discussed her recent work on the JIE, and the problems the Pentagon has with it, on National Defense Week.
