FCW : December 2012
Editor'sNote It was another year of frozen salaries and no budgets, and until Nov. 6, there was a near-daily stream of stump speeches from politicians promising to slash spending further. And even now, with just days remaining in the year, there is no deal in sight to avert the across-the- board cuts that are universally seen as bad policy and that Congress and the president gave themselves 17 months to avoid. In this issue, we cast a quick glance backward but focus mainly on what to expect in the months to come. Camille Tuutti explains what lessons insiders are taking away from the year s most memorable cybersecurity developments. Brian Robinson nds that the BYOD trend is not quite as inevitable as many suggest. H.B. Hatter explores the opportunities that commercial 4G is beginning to make possible. In an excerpt from their new e-book, former FCC of cials Reed Hundt and Blair Levin make a case for federal technology as a catalyst for economic growth and better government. And in this issue s cover story, Richard E. Cohen, FCW s newest contributing writer and a longtime chronicler of Capitol Hill, pro les House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa. The California congressman has often brought an adversarial tone to his oversight of agency operations, but he is also a technophile who has big ideas --- and possibly bipartisan support --- for federal IT reform. The year was not all bad, of course. Headway was made on some initiatives, and countless agency executives continued to innovate despite budget questions and other obstacles. (Reminder: Make sure those individuals get the recognition they deserve. Nominate them for the Federal 100 by Dec. 21 at FCW.com/fed100.) On balance, however, we are looking forward to 2013. Even budget crises can be turned into opportunities, and at least there won t be any campaign ads. --- TROY K.
