When will government ‘get’ IT?

I am delighted to see an increasing focus within Government on efficiency and effectiveness. At the same time, however, we have some government agencies that seem to have completely missed the boat when it comes to how an efficient and effective public service might be enabled.
My dismay comes from the fact that while some agencies are retaining or putting in place CIOs that report at the second tier in the organisation; some are disestablishing or pushing the function significantly down the organisational structure. This causes a disconnect between the strategic level of the organisation and the Information Technology and Information Management function, which should be enabling this strategy.
