Press Release: Mayor revives Informational Technology (IT) Advisory Committee

As I receive them, press releases from the City will be posted in full on the Press Release page (see the tabs at the top of the site)

This one deals with the use of technology within the City Departments. After Clancy's version of Menino's email gate and deletion of other important city records, City Hall believes it's important to reinstate this committee with a strong focus on usage policies and also have a focus on reduction of costs by using consistent and bulk purchasing.

It always amazes me, when I walk into a City Hall office and the computer is shoved off to the side of the room. There is so much lack of efficiency and antiquated process in that building. I hope this committee can help to change that. 

This committee should also be given a charge to focus on technology for Open Government initiatives. The Press release, unfortunately, does not go in to that area.
