The role of the chief information officer continues to evolve under the Obama administration. Today's federal CIOs are expected not only to drive efficiency, transparency and strengthen information and network security, but also to implement the best technologies and practices to establish and maintain relationships with citizens.
CIOs face additional pressure from the conflicting objectives of their mission. Among them: How does one balance the demand for immediate, transparent access to information while maintaining security and privacy? How does one reduce IT spending while improving services? What is the role of the CIO within the agency and how does one operationalize it?
We'll ask today's panelists to share their views on how to meet these challenges as well as their priorities for the next year. We'll also ask them to share how they are meeting the demands of both the public and the Obama administration while serving as agents of change.

An agreement between the U.S. and Russia will permit American troops and weapons to fly over Russian territory on the way to Afghanistan. The pact, signed by President Obama during his recent Moscow trip, will save the Pentagon $133 million annually. The President told a Moscow news conference that the agreement is one small step toward improved relations with America's Russian allies.
Now that President Obama has named New York Congressman John McHugh to be the next Secretary of the Army, the man who now has the job -- Pete Geren - can look back on his career as he ponders his future. Geren became acting secretary in March 2007 amidst the crisis in medical care for soldiers. He's overseen deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan. He became secretary in his own right when the President asked him to stay on earlier this year.
