The purpose of the Acquisition Committee for E-Gov (ACE) is to provide the Integrated Acquisition Environment E-GOV initiative with:

  • federal acquisition community vision, perspective and guidance,
  • executive level decision-making and oversight regarding scope, priorities, budget and funding
The ACE is an executive steering committee established under the Chief Acquisition Officers Council (CAOC), a senior level forum established for monitoring and improving the federal acquisition environment.

    • Provide ruling on IAE Change Control Board (CCB) recommendations that exceed approved current scope and budget.
  • Ensure the alignment of IAE information technology capital investments with business goals as required by the E-Gov Strategy, applicable statutes, Federal architecture framework specifications, Financial Systems Integration Office (FSIO) requirements and acquisition regulations.
    • Review the IAE Initiative's OMB Exhibit 300 in coordination with the IAE Program Management Office (PMO) and provide input and feed back prior to OMB submission.
      • Review and approve business case
      • Review and approve funding model
    • Review each application investment in an annual internal program review (IPR) presentation.
    • Review, approve, and enforce IAE architecture specifications (e.g., standards, constraints, guidelines, processes, and products) for use within the acquisition community.
