Metropolitan Maryland September 2010 Chapter Meeting

Program: As the watchdog of the federal government, the Government Accountability Office often describes itself as "living in a glass house." Identifying issues and providing recommendations to other agencies means that GAO has to be a model agency and practice what it preaches. Catherine Teti, Managing Director of Knowledge Services and the Chief Agency Privacy Officer, will talk about life in the glass house and GAO's approach to knowledge management that strives to integrate information management functions, such as records management, information services (ranging from libraries to social media), and privacy, and to ensure their coordination with other business and mission functions.

Speaker: Catherine Teti, Managing Director for Knowledge Services, Chief Agency Privacy Officer, US Government Accountability Office (GAO)
