Corporate Partner Advisory Group Survey Series
Accenture Federal Services and Association of Government Accountants (AGA)
Information technology (IT) leaders in the federal government face operational and strategic challenges from a combination of constrained budgets, continuous advancements in technology, competing business requirements, compliance mandates and an aging workforce (which creates knowledge gaps). In addition, federal IT leaders must identify new ways of doing business to maximize limited monetary and human capital resources while aligning their IT function to their agency’s mission and strategic direction.
It was in this environment that we surveyed federal chief information officers (CIOs) and other federal IT professionals. Our survey focused on strategic areas of innovation, analytics, cyber security and human capital in an attempt to understand how the IT leader is navigating through this challenging environment.
