“CIOs will get a new mission under the Office of Management Budget’s IT management reform plan unveiled earlier this month. Within the next six months, the Obama administration plans to shift the responsibility of agency CIOs from policy-making to portfolio management, thereby strengthening government accountability and efficiency.

To make the shift successful, however, observers said the federal government must ensure CIOs are considered part of an agency’s leadership team and are able to promote the business value of IT projects, harking back to longstanding debate about the value of the CIO position.”
