The federal Chief Information Officers Council has restructured its committees with the goal of fulfilling the government’s technology requirements, Federal News Radio reported Wednesday.
Jason Miller writes the reorganization aims to equip CIOs with tools and guidance in order to meet the federal government’s priorities and address technology trends.
Miller reports the council trimmed the number of committees from five to three, namely the information security and identity management.
Three new practice communities and two task forces have also been developed.
One panel, the innovation committee, will work to help agencies move to cloud environments, virtualization and mobility.
The data center task force will work with the portfolio management committee to aid agencies in fulfilling their cost-reduction goals.
