On the agenda

State chief information officers brought a number of issues before Congress during their annual visit to Washington, D.C., earlier this month.

Some of their top concerns included:

The lack of state-level cybersecurity planning in the Homeland Security Department's preparedness plans.

The need for federal agencies to help and support state enterprise architecture efforts through funding and coordination of standards and methodologies.

The removal of barriers to multiagency and multigovernment programs put in place because of federal funding requirements.

The impact of federal privacy requirements on state budgets and plans.
