While those efforts are worthy, I would urge you to take a broader view of Information Technology (IT) by integrating it with your strategic economic plan. Businesses and consumers are already benefiting from the success of that investment in lower Internet costs, etc. To continue expanding IT in the public sector, the government needs an IT strategy to deliver technology across the government with efficiency and scale. However, this cannot be accomplished without a Chief Technology Officer (CTO) role. As the government becomes more digital, the threat of cyber thieves hacking government systems to steal valuable information increases substantially.
