Jim Sills, secretary of Delaware’s Department of Technology and Information and state chief information officer, has been appointed to serve as a representative to the Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative Global Advisory Committee on behalf of the National Association of State Chief Information Officers.
Sills, who also is NASCIO’s executive committee director, will serve alongside more than 30 independent organizations from the justice and public safety communities.
“It’s an honor to be appointed to serve on the GAC,” Sills in a statement. “I look forward to learning from other members, and sharing some insights and best practices on technologies, such as cloud, mobile, security and business intelligence. As the NASCIO representative, it’s my goal to help drive the conversation on how to improve data sharing among this outstanding group of federal criminal justice and public partners.”
GAC operates under the support and leadership auspices of the Bureau of Justice Assistance Office of Justice Programs at the Justice Department.
GAC advises the U.S. attorney general on information sharing issues and assists member organizations and the people they serve through a series of initiatives.
Member organizations participate in the GAC out of shared responsibility and a shared belief that, together, they can bring about positive change in interorganizational communication and data sharing, according to NASCIO.
