Kevin Carroll, Army Program Executive Officer for Enterprise Information Systems, said sharp restrictions on travel for all DOD personnel has resulted in cancellation of the 2007 Army IT Conference sponsored by PEO-EIS and the Army Small Computer Program. The conference was scheduled to be held in Phoenix June 11-14.
This is the second consecutive year the conference has been canceled due to an unexpected budget crunch, and Carroll said he has learned his lesson. â€œNext year weâ€™re going to do it in February,â€ when the cash is still flowing, he said.
Bob Brewin joined Government Executive in April 2007, bringing with him more than 20 years of experience as a journalist focusing on defense issues and technology. Bob covers the world of defense and information technology for Nextgov, and is the author of the “What’s Brewin” blog.
