Industry Review & Feedback for GOC Strategic IT Plan

On behalf of the Information Technology Association of Canada (ITAC), we would like to thank the Government of Canada for tabling the draft Strategic IT Plan for industry review and feedback.

As ITAC is the voice of Canada’s Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector,  our constituents greatly appreciate the current Government’s recognition of the strategic role that ICT sector can play in further developing the plan. As subject-matter experts with countless years of experience shaping plans like these all over the world, our members can most certainly offer you real value and insight into best practices and lessons learned.

We would also like to congratulate the Government of Canada—specifically the Federal CIO Branch and its CIO community—for publishing this important document for consultation. ITAC looks forward to the end result: a strategy that provides a consistent, clear set of directions to help the Government leverage IT in the delivery of its many important programs, and meet its ever-evolving mandate.

ITAC regularly work with members to gain feedback, distill down their insights, and provide a perspective to Government. This letter/document is the result of discussions with our Enterprise Working Group: a group of volunteer experts focused on responding to governmental transformation and modernization initiatives.
