The Executive Committee of the CIO Council has relaunched a panel intended to address challenges in creating and maintaining an effective federal IT workforce.

The CIO Council’s Workforce Committee will focus on areas such as recruiting, retaining and training IT staff. 

A lack of qualified personnel and setbacks that have burdened the federal workforce across the board, such as sequestration, are prominent issues for government IT. A recent online poll showed that half of the federal workforce is considering a job outside the government.

“The Executive Committee of the CIO Council has re-established the Workforce Committee to address the myriad challenges CIOs face in creating an effective and efficient workforce that enables agency mission success,” the group said in a news release. “This committee will focus CIO Council resources on creating the tools and resources necessary for CIOs to create an exemplary IT workforce.”

Department of Transportation CIO Richard McKinney and Nuclear Regulatory Commission CIO Darren Ash will lead the committee and work with the Chief Human Capital Officers Council and the Office of Personnel Management on workforce-related issues.
