CIO Council sets up site on best practices

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, clicking on the link to the Solutions Exchange and applying for a password.
