Richard Spires, former IRS Chief Information Officer and CEO of Learning Tree International discusses pending legislation to overhaul the role of the federal CIO, and the effect it would have on the Office of Management and Budget.


A bill introduced in the house last month would overhaul the reporting structure for Chief Information Officers across the federal government. Co-sponsors Will Hurd (R-TX) and Robin Kelly (D-IL) proposed elevating the position of the Federal CIO and renaming the E-government administrator. Richard Spires, CEO of Learning Tree International says that passing the bill would be a good step forward in government technology management.   “What I really like about the bill is it talks about empowering the Federal CIO to really work across all the agencies to do things to really improve federal IT. That should be that person’s job,” Spires said. It’s not so much about empowering an individual it’s about trying to change the culture in which the federal government works, in particular how it manages IT.”
