Chief Information Officers Council (CIOC)
The CIOC serves as the principal interagency forum for improving practices in the design, modernization, use, sharing, and performance of Federal Government agency information resources. The CIOC is composed of Chief Information Officers and their deputies from the major Federal executive departments and agencies.
IT Investment Management: The CIO Council is focused on turning around poorly performing IT investments by supporting agency CIOs in managing large-scale IT projects more effectively.
Increasing Efficiency and Effectiveness: The CIOC shares key information and best practices to promote more productive use of IT resources, including government-wide data-center consolidation, use of cloud computing, improved cost modeling and reform of IT acquisition.
IT Security: The CIOC helps CIOs improve the execution of information security projects across the Federal Government and continuously monitor security performance.
High-Priority Initiatives: In 2012, CIOC will engage in additional activities to assist CIOs in complying with laws, regulations and policy, with an emphasis on those related to privacy, accessibility, and IT workforce issues.
