Federal Leaders Digital Insight Study Release Event

The National Academy of Public Administration (the Academy) and ICF International will hold the release event for 2nd annual Federal Leaders Digital Insight Study on February 4, 2016 from 8:00-10:30 AM at the University Club in Washington, DC. The Study is based on a survey of Federal executives designed to solicit insight on their agencies’ adoption of digital technology, focusing on innovations, stakeholder engagement, security, and progress made since the 2014 study. A panel of the Academy’s expert Fellows developed the Study’s findings and recommendations. Please join us for a discussion of the 2015 Federal Leaders Digital Insight Study and an opportunity to engage with Lisa Schlosser, Deputy Federal Chief Information Officer (CIO), Deputy Administrator of E-Government and IT, Office of Management and Budget and our Academy’s Fellows.

I very much enjoyed serving on the panel overseeing this study. It’s illuminating to see how fast things are changing with regard to digital services in the federal sector.

Of course, then there’s this from Federal News Radio:

The Office of Management and Budget is planning to turn up the heat once again on agency commodity IT spending. First it was on desktops and laptops, and now it will be on mobile devices. The draft policy tells agencies “effective immediately, except as provided in this policy, all agencies are prohibited from issuing solicitations for new contract awards for mobile device [sic] and services, and should look to the existing governmentwide General Services Administration wireless solution.”
