US defence IT security budget report

Government Insights (IDC) : 28 January, 2009  (New Product)
Report from Government Insights analyses US Government spending on IT security for the Department of Defence for fiscal year 2009
Independent research and advisory firm, Government Insights has announced the release of a new perspective, US Department of Defense IT Security Initiatives, FY09: Overview and Analysis (Doc #GI215453), which analyses the Fiscal Year (FY) 2009 Department of Defence (DoD) IT security budget and programs. According to the new report, the DoD FY09 information technology (IT) budget request is $33.0 billion, which represents a 3% increase over DoD's enacted FY08 IT budget. More specifically, the IT security component of the FY09 defense IT budget request totals $4.0 billion, which is 12.2% of the total IT budget. This represents a 3.4% increase over the FY08 IT security budget of $3.9 billion. By comparison, the enacted FY08 defense IT budget was $32.1 billion and the enacted FY08 defence IT security budget was $3.9 billion, or 12.1% of the total IT budget.

'If the 3.4% increase in DoD's FY09 IT security budget is approved, it will mean that the IT security budget will have increased as a percentage of the total defence IT budget from 7.6% to 12.2% during the five years from FY05 to FY09, highlighting the critical importance of IT security in the Defence Department,' said Mark Kagan, research manager with Government Insights.

Furthermore, the Government Insights study forecasts the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of the defense IT budget over the FY05-FY09 period to be 1.2% compared with a 10.9% CAGR for the defense IT security budget over the same five-year period. However, even the projected 3% increase in the FY09 defense IT budget will still not return defense IT spending to its FY06 level.

The new perspective examines the overall and programmatic budgetary trends during FY07-FY09 to provide very granular insight into Air Force, Army, Navy, and DoD security priorities and spending. The report also:

* Identifies and provides detailed descriptions of the 52 Air Force, Army, Navy, and Defence Agency IT programs that are specifically coded in the federal IT budget as security programs.

* Identifies and provides detailed descriptions of the 106 Air Force, Army, Navy, and Defence Agency IT programs that contain over 30% of the DoD IT security budget, but which is embedded spending not specifically identified in the budget.

* Provides an estimate and analysis of IT security spending in the intelligence community budget, most of which is embedded spending contained in the defence budget.
