The Government Technology & Services Coalition today announced the acquisition of the AIM Council’s FITGov Summit, the premier event for IT Modernization, capital planning and governance. GTSC will incorporate the missions of the event in their Capacity Building programming to serve their government partners and membership.
“GTSC has always focused on the mission of protecting our country. Too many do not understand the importance of the planning and execution that buttresses mission success. Adding our experts, leadership, and membership will provide the opportunity to grow the Summit and build the trusted space for collaboration in all aspects of mission,” said Kristina Tanasichuk, CEO & Founder.
Federal executive departments and agencies are required to use a disciplined capital planning and investment control (CPIC) process to acquire, use, maintain, and dispose of information technology in alignment with the agency’s enterprise architecture planning and development processes. OMB Circular A-130 further requires federal executive departments and agencies to establish and maintain a capital planning and investment control process that links mission needs, information, and information technology in an effective and efficient manner.
GTSC is uniquely positioned to link the process to mission.
Hosted for 14 years, most recently by the nonprofit AIM Council, the FITGov Summit draws hundreds of capital planning and investment control professionals from the public and private sectors to collaborate around all stages of acquisition information management.
“GTSC has built strong partnerships with government leaders who want to collaborate real-time with industry. We feel it is an excellent fit to develop a trusted and needed community to develop long-term strategic plans that meet mission and build resilience,” said AIM Council Chair and CEO of Excelicon Tushar Garg. “We were very happy to leverage our membership at GTSC to merge the two organizations and further the goals of the FITGov Summit.”
GTSC will add numerous leaders from its membership and the larger community to the new Board of Advisors for the Summit and maintain access to the Summit for all.
The Summit will next convene in November 2022, in-person, unless otherwise dictated by health authorities.
