The federal Chief Information Officers Council is consolidating five of its committees into three as part of a reorganization strategy, Federal News Radio reported Wednesday.
Jason Miller writes the council will also create three communities of practice and two task forces.
One panel, the information security and identity management committee, will be led by Pentagon Deputy CIO Robert Carey and Justice Department CIO Luke McCormack.
Interior Department CIO Bernie Mazer and Energy Department CIO Bob Brese will lead the portfolio management committee.
Mazer said at the Brocade Federal Forum event Tuesday at Washington that his committee will deal with issues such as shared services, TechStat and the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative, Miller writes.
“One of the things we will look at is a more uniform, harmonious way of coming up with metrics — metrics that can be widely shared,” Mazer added, according to the report.
The Innovation committee will focus on open data, big data and cloud and be led by General Services Administration CIO Casey Coleman and acting Homeland Security Department CIO Margie Graves.
