re: Federal CIO Urges Bold Vision For Government IT
Perhaps Mr. Van Roekel should have seen the potential problems with the healthcare.gov launch in advance and advised the President and the Secretary of HHS as to how to avoid them.

This is, after all, the most visible aspect of the health care reform initiative his boss made the top priority of his administration. I have to think that if I had been in his shoes I would have spent large parts of the last two years doing everything in my power to make sure it came off smoothly.

re: Federal CIO Urges Bold Vision For Government IT
Sorry, but I can't get over the fed CIO's comments about Healthcare.gov. "VanRoekel argued that the government's willingness to tackle something on such a scale, with such 'incredible complexity,' is 'something to be proud of' despite Healthcare.gov's initial failings." Really? We should be proud that the government took on such a huge effort even if it was woefully unprepared to carry it out? Should the Union have been proud of Burnside's generalship at Fredericksburg, given the scale and incredible complexity of that Civil War battle? Or should we view it for what it was: an ill-conceived death march?

One of the open questions that Federal CIO Steve VanRoekel did not address at the ACT-IAC Executive Leadership Conference is whether there will be a successor version of the Digital Government Strategy. With most of the milestones of the document completed, but many of the initiatives still in play, it would seem agencies would benefit from a Digital Government Strategy 2.0...as our contributor, Tom Suder suggests -- particularly in the area of mobile.
