Capital Planning and Investment Control

Capital planning and investment control (CPIC) is a structured, integrated approach to managing information technology (IT) investments. It is the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) primary process for making investment decisions, assessing investment process effectiveness, and refining investment-related policies and procedures. It ensures that all IT investments align with the agency’s mission and support business needs while minimizing risks and maximizing returns through the investment’s lifecycle.

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) requires Federal agencies to capture capital requests and submit them electronically in a consistent format known as Exhibit 300 Business Case.

IEA provides IT support services to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) OMB Exhibit 300 Development Support Program through our analysis of all IT investments. We are currently providing portfolio management and CPIC support at the VA’s Office of Enterprise Operations and Field Development (EOFD). In this effort, we support select, control, and evaluate phase activities to ensure that IT investments align with the agency’s mission, support business needs, and comply with Federal mandates, policies, and regulations while minimizing risks and maximizing returns throughout the investment’s lifecycle.
