OMB Circular A-130
print the content item {PDF=create pdf file of the content item^plugin:content.16}
in Regulatory Compliance > A-130 Compliance

You can view the entire OMB Circular A-130 document on the Whitehouse.gov website.

You can also download the A-130 PDF file.

Here is the stated purpose of OMB Circular A-130:
"This Circular establishes policy for the management of Federal information resources. OMB includes procedural and analytic guidelines for implementing specific aspects of these policies as appendices."

Here's the killer line to look for:
"Apply OMB policies and, for non-national security applications, NIST guidance to achieve adequate security commensurate with the level of risk and magnitude of harm."

And here's the hammer:
"Oversight: The Director of OMB will use information technology planning reviews, fiscal budget reviews, information collection budget reviews, management reviews, and such other measures as the Director deems necessary to evaluate the adequacy and efficiency of each agency's information resources management and compliance with this Circular."

Under FISMA all NIST FIPS documents are now required. The 800 series documents are also going to be used by OMB as "best practices" when conducting their audits. Implementing these NIST standards is going to be quite a lot of work for most agencies.
