The Government IT Executive Council (GITEC) will hold its annual summit May 20–22 in Baltimore. GITEC events provide a forum for government leaders to network and strategize with one another, as well as with professionals from the private sector.
This year’s event will focus on shared services. Federal CIO Steven VanRoekel, who spearheads the Obama administration’s IT Shared Services Strategy, will open the conference on Sunday evening with a keynote address.
Richard Spires, CIO of the Department of Homeland Security, will deliver a Monday morning keynote on “The Business Case of Shared Services.” Donny Roy, executive director for information sharing at DHS, will speak about the National Information Exchange Model and her organization’s role in supporting shared services within agencies and across government. On Tuesday, Michael Howell of the Information Sharing Environment will present a keynote on the “Sharing of Terrorist Information.”
Panels during the conference will discuss a variety of topics, including government innovation, mobile shared services, the GPRA Modernization Act, secure information sharing and data centers.
