Sixty-percent of responding government information technology and financial leaders told an Accenture-backed survey that training programs could increase workforce efficiency amid budget limitations, FCW reported Wednesday.
Reid Davenport writes that spending cuts, skills gaps and a lack of technology buy-in were the top concerns cited by survey respondents.
Accenture and the Association of Government Accountants jointly produced the “Addressing the Fiscal Challenge: Leveraging Information Technology to Drive Government Efficiency” report.
More than 25 percent said they want to increase workforce training to address data analytics management issues, according to Davenport’s article.
Survey findings also indicated that government IT organizations believe cross training, innovation and shared service initiatives could maximize efficiency out of a reduced workforce.
