February 24, 2011 (Washington, DC)— Former Congressman Tom Davis will be the lunchtime keynote speaker at the Fourth Annual Microsoft Government Contractor Summit on Thursday, March 17 at the Marriott Fairview Park Hotel in Falls Church, VA. Karen Evans, former administrator of the Office of Electronic Government and Information Technology at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and a leading figure in Federal Government IT, will also host a discussion on current Federal IT trends. Pleasant Valley Business Solutions (PVBS) is the platinum sponsor for the fourth consecutive year.

The Honorable Tom Davis, whose career spans the fields of technology and politics, is respected as a tech-savvy leader and a dedicated public servant, Davis is a compelling speaker with a unique perspective on the issues facing The Federal Government and how it works with its service providers. In the U.S. Congress, Davis was a leader in promoting the President’s Management Agenda and maximizing the performance of government agencies. In addition, Davis led several subcommittees, including the Subcommittee on Technology and Procurement Policy where he sponsored legislation on e-government, information security and critical infrastructure.

Another highlight will be a presentation led by Karen Evans. Evans was often referred to as the Federal Government’s unofficial CIO or e-gov czar. According to Government Technology magazine, she’s “a results-oriented IT administrator who had the sometimes impossible task of improving how the world's largest government deployed IT. Evans…improved government by enforcing enterprise architecture for government IT and setting standards that streamlined how workers identified themselves on the vast networks of government.”
