Federal CIOs say meh to administration transparency goals

A recent survey of federal CIOs entitled “Transparency and Transformation Through Technology” (PDF) found that Federal agency chief information officers want to “concentrate on integrating information technology systems with business processes, not necessarily on transparency and performance management initiatives.” Number one on their list of greatest value projects was “integrating systems and processes.” In fifth place, the last place, was “transparency and performance management initiatives.”

The survey asked more than 40 federal CIOs about which initiatives will provide greatest value and what they consider the greatest barriers to increased effectiveness. For more, see the Fierce Government IT news briefing:
