We sought to determine whether the processes used by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) managers to oversee the development of information technology projects helped produce intended results. We also sought to determine how well Agency management monitored these projects. To help ensure EPA manages its information systems in a cost-effective manner, life cycle development guidance requires management involvement at key decision points. These decisions must be documented by EPA management in the system decision documents before the system may advance from one phase of development to the next.
