OMB outlines expanded roles for federal CIOs

The White House budget director, Jack Lew, directed agency leaders to ensure their chief information officers are responsible for "true portfolio management for all IT [information technology]" and not "just policymaking."

In a new memo, Lew outlined four areas where CIOs should have a lead role:
  • Governance of agencies' IT portfolios.
  • Commodity IT purchases, such as data centers, desktops, email and business systems.
  • Management of large IT projects and programs.
  • Information security programs.
