NIH Inventory of its Information Technology Resources and Information Systems

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has 27 Institutes and Centers, and each has its own specific set of research priorities. As such, the IT resources and information systems used by each of the Institutes and Centers may vary considerably. Federal law requires agencies to maintain an accurate inventory of IT resources and information systems. Revised in 2016, Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-130, Managing Information as a Strategic Resource, requires that all Federal agencies identify information technology (IT) resources and maintain an inventory of agency information systems. The Departments of Defense and Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations Act, 2019 and Continuing Appropriations Act, 2019 (Public Law No. 115-245) and its Accompanying Report directed that OIG examine operations of NIH. We will determine whether NIH has complied with the applicable requirements relating to its IT resources and information systems.
