The Federal CIO Survey, produced in partnership with Professional Services Council (PSC), is an annual publication based on interviews of CIOs, CISOs, and other senior government officials throughout the federal government to get an understanding of their concerns and priorities. Through these surveys, top IT officials, oversight groups, and congressional staff shared their views on challenges facing federal CIOs and the federal IT community.
The 2017 Federal CIO Survey - Transitions: Managing Federal IT in a Dynamic Environment
addresses the tremendous amount of change the federal IT community has seen this year. The transition to a new presidential administration has brought with it opportunities and challenges for agency IT leaders. Among the Trump Administration’s priorities are bringing more innovation into government and modernizing federal IT to better serve Americans. This shines a spotlight on the role of Chief Information Officers (CIOs).
At a time of transition, budgetary uncertainty and competition for IT talent, federal CIOs continue to push forward and attempt to do more with less resources. They must find creative ways to innovate and bring new ideas to their organizations while also meeting enduring challenges such as increasing cyber threats and maintaining mission-critical legacy systems. This year’s 27th anniversary survey underscores the key role of CIOs in helping agencies meet their mission and ultimately making the federal government serve Americans more effectively.
