David Nelson

CIO, Nuclear Regulatory Commission

Federal Leadership of the Year

NRC spent the last several years improving its employees’ ability to telework, and when the pandemic struck, CIO David Nelson’s office spent several weeks updating information systems and holding walk-in training using Wi-Fi and simulating remote access. Currently, 98% of the agency teleworks, and now a new strategic IT roadmap is being developed. “The changes brought on by the new remote working environment we find ourselves in has enabled new thinking across the agency and increased our desire to use existing and developing technology to improve efficiency and effectiveness,” Nelson said. “The agency’s senior leadership team recognizes the value in this and is engaged in this important planning.”
