DHS unveils its top eight 2004 IT priorities

The Homeland Security Department's IT team earlier this month identified eight priorities for their 2004 to-do list.

DHS chief technology officer Lee Holcomb said'at a meeting sponsored by the Washington Chapter of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association'that department brass must still bless the list but he expects few changes.

The list: information sharing, within the department as well as across the federal civilian and military sectors, the vendor community and the public; consolidation and shuttering of duplicative systems; IT security; creation of one IT infrastructure; refinement of DHS' enterprise architecture; portfolio management; oversight of IT operations; and development of IT human capital within the department and in the vendor community.
