Federal CIOs Roles and Responsibilities: A Comparison with Private-Sector CIOs
Lester Diamond, Assistant Director of IT at the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO)
Mr. Diamond will summarize recent GAO work regarding the responsibilities of CIOs of leading organizations in the private sector and will compare those results to their earlier report reviewing the responsibilities of federal CIOs. These reports were developed to provide Congress and others with information describing the responsibilities of CIOs in both the federal government and the private sector and to contribute to the development of a framework for IT governance in the federal government.
