The U.S. government is about to pass a $3.5 trillion proposed federal budget (with some scaled-back compromises). A new infrastructure package has already passed for $1 trillion. The federal agencies are expected to spend a combined $92 billion on IT with about $54 billion attributed to civilian agencies and $39 billion spending at the Department of Defense (DOD).
For the 2021 fiscal year, the U.S. federal government has budgeted 92.17 billion U.S. dollars for federal IT spending. Civilian agencies accounted for 54.36 billion U.S. dollars of federal IT spending, and the Department of Defense was the agency with the single biggest funding at 38.8 billion U.S. dollars.
