CIOs in the public sector: Their roles, responsibilities and future
conference contributionposted on 06.12.2017, 00:00 by R Lawry, Dianne Waddell
This paper will identify the critical factors required of a CIO in order to fulfil their role and responsibilities successfully within the public sector. In doing so, this paper will fill a gap in the literature and utilise the predictions of both the private sector and public sector with regards to their future. An adapted model will be presented which will incorporate the suitable literature available with regards to the functions of a CIO, and integrate this within a public sector context. It is intended that this model will sit along side the numerous private sector studies and serve as the beginning of a broader spotlight on the CIO whose responsibilities touch all organisations – especially public sector.
