Letter to the editor
This is in response to an FCW.com poll question March 25 to March 29, that asked: How do you feel about a proposal that would allow federal information technology managers to swap jobs with their private-sector counterparts for up to two years?
I think this program would be great for government organizations because industry usually has the new technology. Government would gain an employee who was not only up on the new technology but could see new business trends.
However, I can see where organizations may feel that employees may not want to come back to government after a job swap, because of the lure of less bureaucracy.
