As more people and organizations (including government organizations) use the Internet, there have been new challenges, including privacy, security, use of technology in education and the workplace, and accessibility for people who have disabilities. As the use of computers has grown to include things such as computer assisted learning, distance education, adaptive technologies for people with special needs, the funding requirements have also grown. This all requires careful budgeting. While the government understands the need for technology, there are some issues. Consider for example that the Office of Personnel Management was hacked in 2015 compromising the sensitive data of more than 21.5 million people. This followed many other cybersecurity breaches and failures, most occurring during 2013 and 2014. Another example of poorly executed technology is the creation of healthcare.gov. This website launch failed to achieve most of its objectives by its launch date, and was beset by problems after its launch. It launched in October 2013 only to crash when users tried to sign up for health care coverage. Rather than having a single contractor in charge, the Center for Medical and Medicaid Services (CMS) had 33 contractors. Additionally, the contracts put the government at risk of overruns for several contracts. People who had created accounts found the site didn’t recognize them., People found that the site miscalculated subsidies they might receive. http://www.govtech.com/state/Can-Government-Avoid-Technology-Failure.html Consider how technology impacts governments and citizens in both positive and negative ways.
