The CIO Council has taken the idea of component reuse a step further by setting up a registry of applications for program and project managers to search and possibly deploy.
Dave Wennergren, Navy CIO and co-chairman of the council's Best Practices Committee, said the site will encourage collaboration among agencies by allowing them to share and use best practices in a centralized place.
As a part of the overall CIO Council Web site redesign, the Solutions Exchange provides a short description of the software or product that an agency and the council deem successful.
The registry already lists 61 applications, ranging from IT security to setting up a continuity of operations Web site and developing an enterprise architecture, Wennergren said.
IT managers can gain access to the site by visiting the CIO Council Web site at www.cio.gov
, clicking on the link to the Solutions Exchange and applying for a password.
