Critical Update: 3 Major Programs to Watch in 2019


To wrap season two, we run down three programs with high stakes for the agencies in play, as well as the rest of government.

As we wrap up the second season of Critical Update, we wanted to do something a different.

For the last episode of this season, we go over three major government IT programs and projects that our reporters are watching this year, including the biggest single cloud award in Defense Department history, the ongoing saga of Veterans Affairs’ electronic health records and a Homeland Security cybersecurity program that touches—and, soon, will rate—every federal agency.

The stakes are high for all three programs, and what happens next will have ripple effects throughout government.

But we don’t want to give out any spoilers. You can listen to the episode below or download it from the App Store or Google Play.
