CIO Council sets 2001 course

Better online services, tighter security and a skilled systems work force are among the goals of the Chief Information Officers Council's 2001 strategic plan.

The council unveiled the plan early this month at the Industry Advisory Council's Executive Leadership Conference in Richmond, Va.

Last year's plan outlined how the CIO Council would work and what it would do, said John Dyer, CIO at the Social Security Administration. The new guide defines the group's consensus on the direction of federal information technology efforts, he said.

The plan sets six objectives for the government's CIOs:

• Focus on providing services to citizens via the Internet.

• Innovate business methods and integrate them with high-end applications.

• Improve security and systems reliability.

• Attract and keep qualified IT workers.

• Develop and collaborate with partners throughout government.

• Define, evaluate and improve management of IT investments.
