Taking over IT initiatives in a cash strapped province will create a real challenge for Scott Campbell, British Columbia’s interim chief information officer.

“B.C. is significantly fiscally challenged and with a huge IT agenda, he’ll have to figure out where the investment money is going to come from,” said John Schinbein, the province’s CIO for the Ministry of Health Services, who spoke in November at the CIO Summit held in Toronto. “It’s going to be a challenge, but I’m sure he’s up to it.”

Campbell, a former CIO with the Ontario government, was hired as B.C.’s chief information officer in October. He is currently developing a strategic plan for information management and e-government for the province, including identifying applications and defining requirements that must be met to put the applications in place.
