Technology In Government
TIG’s redesigned issue hits desks in March. The new, improved version of this publication will feature a number of new sections. These include Deconstruction Zone, a look at the good, the bad and the ugly of a project from start to finish. Seal the Deal examines
the ins and outs of public sector procurement. Steal This Idea, meanwhile, will focuses on small-scale projects with potentially large payback that could be reused in other departments and agencies. If you have pitches applicable to these sections, please let us know.
The feature section as we know it has been eliminated, as has Snapshot, so please ignore the existing editorial calendar, which will be revised soon.
