DC Office of the Chief Technology Officer
With this funding, the District will be responsible for providing technical assistance to local institutions, working across governmental agencies to focus and resolve broadband related obstacles, and coordinating stakeholder activities across DC’s communities. The Office of the Chief Technology Officer (OCTO) office hosted a broadband summit with a portion of the original planning funds. With amendment funding, it will continue to host semiannual broadband summits over the life of the project.
Application Usage and Development:
This project will create a centralized online platform that will enable DC to deliver its existing e-learning content, including curriculum and video training, all of which currently resides in multiple formats and at numerous locations throughout the city. Once online, this content will be available for use by anyone, and OCTO will ensure that all training locations in DC are aware of its existence.
Data Collection, Integration, and Validation:
This project was originally funded for broadband planning activities and two years of data collection. In September of 2010, this project was amended to extend data collection activities for an additional three years and to identify and implement best practices.
