Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI)

The Policy

The Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) is designed to improve data center optimization in the Federal Government. The policy builds on existing federal IT policy and fulfills the data center requirements of the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA).

The Program Management Office

The OGP IT Modernization division oversees the Data Center and Cloud Optimization Initiative (DCCOI) Program Management Office (PMO). The DCCOI PMO helps agencies comply with federal policies impacting data center, cloud, and IT infrastructure optimization by acquiring technologies, tools, and evidence-based best practices to meet requirements in M-21-05 [PDF] and the federal cloud computing strategy, Cloud Smart.
