New CIO handbook provides a resource for IT transitions

Federal IT managers can learn from agency case studies

Federal CIOs now have an online handbook to help them navigate IT system acquisition, reform and maintenance, reports Nextgov’s blog Tech Insider.

The website, CIO.gov/bestpractices, had its soft launch April 13 and is comprised of 6-page case studies that outline an agency’s IT system problem and the steps taken to find a solution.

The site was promised by Federal CIO Vivek Kundra in last December’s 25-point IT reform plan and more information will be added to the platform in the coming months as agencies aggregate case studies and lessons learned, the article said.
