Chief Information Officer Council (CIOC)

Overview

The Chief Information Officer Council (CIOC) is an important component of the state’s information resource management (IRM) framework to serve the needs of Oregon citizens. The CIOC has operated since 2002 as a successful point of collaboration for agency CIO’s to share information and to plan and conduct multi-agency and enterprise-level IRM activities.

The purpose of the CIOC is to:

  • Support information technology (IT) and IRM objectives of agencies and state government as a whole;
  • Advise the State Chief Information Officer (State CIO), Technical Advisory Board (TAB) and other appropriate bodies on IT and IRM-related business needs and challenges;
  • Form workgroups as needed to consider and act on IT and IRM issue; 
  • Strive to search consensus when appropriate to enable high-quality decisions, recommendations and advice;
  • Proactively identify and act on opportunities for multi-agency and enterprise initiatives to optimize government services and information;
  • Facilitate cross-agency communication and collaboration to improve efficiencies and effectiveness in planning and service delivery;
  • Establish, promote and support achievement of IT and IRM strategic direction; and
  • Help state policymakers achieve their key objectives through the education and evaluation of emerging technologies and innovative use of IT and IRM.

The CIOC is sponsored by the State Chief Information Officer (State CIO). Its charter is created per the consensus of the CIOC members coordinated by the CIOC Chair and Vice Chair.
