The CIO Council is comprised of committees that align with Federal IT priorities. The current committees focus on Innovation, Portfolio Management, Cybersecurity, and Workforce. The committees manage specific projects on behalf of the Council. The Council also collaborates closely with two task forces to help share and disseminate agency best practices and lessons learned across two key initiatives, Data Center Consolidation and Shared Services. In addition, the Council supports and conducts ongoing information exchange with a number of self-organizing Communities of Practice (CoPs) which address important IT topics and issues. Currently, these include the Privacy, Accessibility, and IT Workforce CoPs. By working within a structure that combines formal committees, short-term, agile working groups, and communities of knowledge experts, the Council ensures that the most relevant and pressing Federal IT topics are addressed across the Federal CIO community.
