Strategy 6: Information Technology

Manage information technology as a true enterprise resource

Other Information:

Information technology services are among the most common services in government. Every agency provides a range of them, from email and data storage to desktop support and server farms. Most recently, agencies have begun deploying cloud-based applications to support everything from time-keeping to supply-chain management. With few exceptions, these services follow the traditional stovepiped model of government, with each agency approaching and duplicating them separately. This situation represents a perfect opportunity to achieve real efficiencies by taking an interagency, enterprise approach to common IT services.
