CIOs expect more outsourcing

Federal chief information officers expect to outsource more information technology projects to the private sector this year, especially in areas where agencies lack in-house resources or technical expertise, according to a new survey.

But CIOs are also skeptical of administration efforts to increase the number of public-private competitions for IT work performed by agency employees, according to the report by the Information Technology Association of America. It contains the results of the group's 13th annual survey of federal CIOs.

According to the survey, the CIOs recognize the president's intention to identify and compete large portions of commercial services the federal government performs. However, many believe they have met the objective indirectly by already contracting out the largest portion of IT services.
