$80M funding cut for US Digital Service

Lawmakers in Congress approved an appropriations bill for the 2024 fiscal year that would rescind $80 million in funding for the United States Digital Service, if it passes into law in its current form.

The move to recoup funds from the executive branch-housed technology unit comes amid concerns from senior leaders within the federal IT community over its transparency and use of funding.

USDS, which was launched in 2014 by the White House provides consultation services to federal agencies on IT and technology issues and works to improve and simplify digital services and improve federal websites in particular.
