Rick Holgate, research director for federal government at Gartner, discusses the president’s executive order granting CIOs more authority over agency IT spending and how the order aims to improve communication between CIOs and senior staff. 


The White House has moved to give chief information officers’ more authority within their agencies. An executive order signed last week reaffirms key provisions of the Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act, and specifically gives CIO’s greater control over IT spending. Rick Holgate, Research Director for Federal Government at Gartner said that one of the order’s goals is to refocus agency CIOs away from “line-item” management.   “It is implicit in the executive order. It’s not very explicit, but there are indications in there that they are going to be looking to CIOs to be more strategic,” said Holgate. “They’re looking for a more strategic role for CIOs to take on to, first of all, support other executive orders, like the cybersecurity order, the government reform executive order… There’s certainly that expectation that you can read between the lines on that executive order.”
