Government & Technology

Government at all levels – local, state, and federal – need innovative technology solutions in order to serve their communities and deliver the public services businesses and residents require. CompTIA's Public Sector councils stand at the intersection of government and technology. Through national surveys conducted each year with government officials and issue-driven research reports and guides, technology companies that do business with local, state and federal customers will gain valuable insights into procurement policies, IT modernization programs, and the unique needs of the public sector.
