  • Nelson Discusses Sharing Information: Over 90 percent of the information we have comes from our partners at the state and local and tribal level. That\'s an incredible challenge for us because how do you aggregate information from 50, 60, 70, 80 partners and make sure that\'s an accurate picture. What we\'ve done is we\'ve created what I think is one of the best collaborations that exists in the federal government today. We call it our Environmental Information Exchange Network.Listen with Windows Media Player

  • Evans Discusses the Benefit of the CIO Council: It\'s really a good forum and a good place for us to take on issues that are crosscutting, to make sure OMB hasn\'t lost sight of what the agencies needs are, and it gives them the opportunity to then interact with each other and share best practices.

  • One of the hardest issues we have to face is something called deconfliction. In other words, different people in different agencies, both within the federal government and at the state and local level, can all have interest in the same party and not know it - and be working on the same case. And, what we have to make sure of, in the process of sharing, is that these people get together so that they\'re not stepping on each others toes. Listen with Windows Media Player

  • In the old days, you might have a few word processing folks in your agency and a couple of IT geeks in the back that fed the mainframe computer, but IT wasn\'t an essential part of what we do...Today in the government every mission has IT as a core part of it. You can no longer divorce technology processes from business processes - that\'s why we have CIOs. Listen with Windows Media Player

  • If I had to say, I probably spend 10-20 percent of my time working on technology-related issues, and the vast majority of my time helping people to work through what it means to embrace change - that there\'s this phenomenal opportunity to transform, but it does require you to step out of your comfort zone and to leverage these technologies to find better, new ways of doing business.
