Bulletpoints: Interview with Rico Singleton, Baltimore's New CIO



March 16, 2011 By

The Center for Digital Government just completed an executive interview with Rico Singleton the newly appointed CIO for the City of Baltimore. Baltimore will look to the vendor community to help enable the city to save money through IT. Here are some potential areas of interest:

  • The city will be developing a modernization strategy to address its aging systems, infrastructure and telecommunications network.
  • The city will look to tackle application modernization to address its

    various legacy COBOL applications.

  • The city may look at the cloud as an option.
  • A strategic IT plan is expected to be available in the next 60 days.
  • The city won a competitive grant from IBM for its “Smarter

    Cities” campaign. The grant aims to provide better delivery of municipal

    services, more citizen engagement, and improved efficiency.

  • The city recently launched OpenBaltimore providing public access to data

    enabling greater transparency. The city plans to add at least 100 new data sets

    this summer.
