To support the implementation of FITARA, this paper proposes an updated IT Management Maturity Model to help agencies assess their maturity in six critical functions of IT management.  Since the initial development and implementation of this model in September 2015, additional federal government-wide initiatives, policies, and legislation were issued that tie directly into the tenets of FITARA and IT management. Additionally, agencies provided feedback based on direct experience implementing the model that was included in this update.

The key updates to the model include adding a cybersecurity function, adding Technology Business Management (TBM) attributes, strengthening the emphasis on modernization and incremental development throughout the model, building a stronger focus on software license management, ensuring connections between IT strategic planning and IT budget planning, and including IT workforce re-training to meet IT priorities.
