The Department of Defense requested about $38.6 billion for FY 2022 for its unclassified information technology, such as communications systems and business systems.

- Programs reported progress on only 77 of 172 performance targets
- 15 of the 25 reported having an approved cybersecurity strategy and provided a copy to validate
