Federal chief information officers are influencing mission-critical decisions and having oversight over more spending than ever before.

More than half of the CIOs and deputy CIOs who responded to an exclusive online Federal News Radio survey about their 2012 priorities said the recent Office of Management and Budget memo giving them oversight over commodity IT spending either will improve how they manage IT spending or codifies their existing authorities. Only 16 percent said the memo will not make a difference.

More than two-thirds of the respondents said their agency’s senior decision-makers value their input and 80 percent said those same leaders understand the value information technology brings to the mission.
