Focusing on six words: Helping government do its job better

What are the big issues for state and local CIOs??? (And what isn’t!)

What are the big issues for CIOs at state and local governments? Well, NASCIO asked ’em and here is their list [PDF]:

1. Consolidation: centralizing, consolidating services, operations, resources, infrastructure
2. Shared Services: business models, sharing resources, services, infrastructure
3. Budget and Cost Control: managing budget reduction, strategies for savings, reducing or
avoiding costs, activity based costing
4. Security: security safeguards, enterprise policies, data protection, insider threat
5. Electronic Records Management/Digital Preservation/E-discovery: strategies, policies, legal
issues, opportunities for shared services, emergency preparedness
6. ERP Strategy: acquisition, implementation, expansion, upgrade
7. Green IT: policies, energy efficiency, power management, green procurement, e-waste
8. Transparency: open government, performance measures and data, accountability
9. Health Information Technology: assessment, partnering, implementation
10. Governance: improving IT governance, data governance

I’m really surprised budget isn’t number one, to be honest. But I’m also surprised by something that is missing: government 2.0 didn’t seem to even make the list? (Transparency, maybe?)
