FCW : November and December 2016
Trending FedRAMP-approved cloud service providers is the program’s goal for fiscal 2017 150 8 November/December 2016 FCW.COM The CIA is in the process of migrat- ing more than 11 million pages of previously declassified documents to its public CIA.gov website, an action that open-government proponents have been advocating for years. In 2000, the agency created the CIA Records Search Tool (CREST), which is an electronic database of documents declassified under a Clinton adminis- tration executive order calling for the declassification of historically valuable records that are 25 years old or older. However, CREST came under immediate criticism for being housed and accessible only at the National Archives and Records Administration facility in College Park, Md. In other words, although the documents had technically been publicly released, it was not possible to search them with- out traveling to the NARA complex. “The [online] migration is certainly a welcome move, especially if the exist- ing search functionality — which is quite good — is retained on the new site,” said Steven Aftergood, director of the Federation of American Scien- tists’ Project on Government Secrecy and a longtime critic of CREST being kept off-line. CIA spokesman Jonathan Liu con- firmed that the search functional- ity will be retained. “When loaded on the website, the documents will be full-text searchable and have the same features currently available on the CREST system at NARA,” he said. ”This will dramatically increase the ability of the public to access these documents.” Liu added that “the CREST database housed at NARA will remain up and running at least until the website is fully functioning.” He did not provide a time frame for when the new web- site would be available, saying only that the agency is “moving out on the plan to make the transition.” CIA officials did not say why they chose to make the move, but After- good believes the agency simply ran out of reasons not to. “There has been a drumbeat of pub- lic demand for access to these soft- copy records for a decade or longer,” he said. — Sean D.

So please help the most exceptional women and men in our community get the recognition they deserve! For more than a quarter-century, the awards have honored individu- als who go far beyond their assigned duties to make a difference. The Federal 100 are the most pres- tigious awards in federal IT — and for good reason. But it all starts with a great pool of nominees. So if you know people you believe should be among the 2017 Federal 100, please make sure our judges know about them, too. Not certain what it takes to make the Federal 100? Here are five points to remember: 1. Anyone in the federal IT commu- nity is eligible — career civil ser- vants, political appointees, contrac- tors, academics, even members of Congress. 2. The awards are for individual accomplishments in 2016. 3. Winners go above and beyond, whatever their level or rank. A fancy job title is not required, and just doing one’s job well is not enough. 4. You can make multiple nomina- tions. Do so early and often. 5. Impact matters. Tell us what a nominee did and what that work accomplished. The deadline for submissions is Dec. 23, but don’t delay. Go to FCW.com/2017fed100 for details, and get started on your nominations today. — Troy K. Schneider Federal 100 nominations now open GRAPHICS.PIXAR.COM 1216fcw_003-009.indd 8 11/8/16 1:51 PM
