FCW Insider: Who are the Power Players?

Last year, FCW editors complied the list of Government IT Power Players. These are the influential... those leading the way... those that everybody else watches.

Well, we're pulling together the 2007 list of power players. And this is your opportunity to pipe in and tell us who is hot -- and who's not.

We will select 10 people for the over all list -- and then a person for each of our sections of the magazine: management, policy, procurement, and technology.

These people doesn't necessarily have to be the big cheeses -- although they can be. But we really are looking for the innovators, the leaders.

You can see last year's list by going to fcw.com/specials/powerplayers.
