Calling all CIOs

We know your to-do list is overflowing. But we thought we'd pass along a request from the folks at the Association for Federal Information Resources Management to answer a brief government CIO survey.

If you'd be willing to answer the following types of questions ' and would like to know how your colleagues answer them ' AFFIRM would be glad to hear from you and share the survey results. Survey questions include:
  • Is hiring and retaining skilled professionals still the top challenge for you?
  • Is security infrastructure still the most critical technology?
  • What information technology solutions should receive the most funding?
  • How will the election affect you and your agency's IT budget?
  • What are the biggest skills gaps at your agency?

The link to the survey is www.affirm.org/publications/ciosurvey2008.

The survey report will be available Sept. 18 at www.affirm.org.
