DHS CIOs set '05 goals
The Homeland Security Department has more work to do before it can function as a single entity, a six-member panel of the DHS CIO Council told an industry audience in Northern Virginia.
Priorities set by the panel of six DHS CIOs, the "Five for '05," include continuing to merge 22 government agencies into a single department.
Much of the year has been spent "pulling the pieces apart and gluing them back together," said Charles Armstrong, CIO of the Border and Transportation Security Directorate. Coordinating information sharing across the department and with other agencies is part of that reassembly process, he said.
