Broadband, 911, FirstNet -- What is the CIO's Role?

With the passage of the Spectrum Act in 2012, the notion of a dedicated, public-safety broadband network was formalized under a newly established federal entity, FirstNet.  A culmination of nearly a decade of work by public-safety stakeholders, this action makes both spectrum and funding available for a nation-wide wireless network to be developed. This act also put a large emphasis on the states' roles in helping inform and participate in the nation-wide build-out, of which a large portion will include broadband infrastructure. As the result of this convergence in public safety, the role of the state CIO is one of critical importance. Beyond the immediate ramifications of the forthcoming planning grants, ubiquitous public-safety grade broadband access has the potential to be both a disruptive and unifying technology for public safety officials. Join members of FirstNet, NTIA and NASCIO in a moderated discussion about these issues and what they mean for the role of the state CIO.

Stephen Fletcher, Associate Administrator, NTIA

Jeff Johnson, FirstNet Board Member

Mobility for Government -- Empowering Citizens and Employees with Modern Apps and Tools

Between government and the public lies opportunity to extend services using modern technology. Nearly 50% of the U.S. population is equipped with a smart phone and as a result the public is capable of tapping into the opportunities of interacting with their government. Additionally, commercial technology is creating expectations of the citizens on their government, from receiving text alerts when a tornado is bearing down on their town, to a mobile app showing nearest voting locations; this availability of instant information is seeping into expectations of the government.

Within the information flowing among citizens, responders and agencies, is the intelligence that builds a safer city. Technology can collect, correlate and securely distribute it across devices, agencies and communication networks. It is technology and expertise that turns this data stream into information, information into intelligence, and intelligence into citizen and personnel safety.
