Andres Carvallo Named Chairman of the LPPC CIO Task Force

The 3rd Annual LPPC CIO Roundtable will be hosted by Austin Energy from May 14 - 16, 2008, and its CIO, Andres Carvallo, has been named chairman for the next 12 months. Of the 24 member CIOs, 16 will be in attendance at the historic event to review the work of several sub-team groups advancing the planning and execution of key activities: strategic planning, performance metrics, security, disaster recovery, project management, quality programs (like ITIL), and enterprise architecture. The LPPC members will discuss at length their progress toward building the utility of the future.

The Large Public Power Council (LPPC) is an organization comprised of 24 of the nation's largest public owned and controlled power systems. The LPPC represents the public interest on national energy issues. From Sacramento to Seattle, from New York to Texas, LPPC members directly and indirectly provide reliable, high quality, low-cost electricity to most of the more than 40 million people served by publicly owned utilities. This includes serving tens of thousands of large and small businesses located in some of the fastest growing urban and rural residential and commercial markets in America.

The LPPC CIO Task Force was created in 2005 to help accelerate the sharing of IT best practices and knowledge transfer among its members as the industry evolves very quickly to adopt new business models, new clean energy sources, new levels of reliability, and new services to customers.
