Ted Okada, Federal Emergency Management Agency

The White House has been telling agencies to used shared services for the better part of two, two-term administrations. The idea is to save cost and effort by pooling things agencies all do in common. But in practice it's not so easy. Ted Okada is the chief technology officer of the Federal Emergency Management Agency. He's taking a slightly different view of shared service. He contends sharing should be at least as much about data as about operations. Okada joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with details.

HHS pioneers responsive website design, shares out template

It seems like everyone has a smartphone or tablet device these days, and that new-found ubiquity has forced federal agencies to rethink their mobile sites specifically how they're laid out. Leading the charge in increasing mobile friendliness is the Health and Human Services Department (HHSD), which recently moved its own site to a repsonsive design template. And now it's sharing its code with any federal agency that wants it.

Deon Viergutz, President, Fort Meade Alliance

It's no surprise that guarding against cyber threats is a priority for agencies. Data breaches at Homeland Security and a computer threat at the White House are just a few of many recent cyber attacks to hit the federal government. Agency officials say security policies are important but so is employee training. The Fort Meade Alliance surveyed government IT professionals and found more than 60 percent agreed cyber training should be a top priority. Deon Viergutz, president of the Fort Meade Alliance, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the survey.
