VA delivers nearly 90 percent of IT projects on time

The Department of Veterans Affairs says a new system for tracking the development of tehnology projects has led to huge gains in on-time delivery of IT systems. VA introduced the Performance Management and Accountability System in 2009. Back then, it was only delivering 30-percent of its IT projects on schedule. But in new results just announced for 2011, VA says it met project milestones on 89 percent of its projects. And VA says half the projects that missed the milestones got caught up within the next two weeks.
