CIO, Department of Justice
Federal Leadership of the Year
For Justice CIO Melinda Rogers, forward-thinking modernization initiatives already in the works were critical when the agency transitioned to remote work. Starting in late February, she and her team worked during off-hours and weekends to secure surge support for a doubled network capacity, implement additional remote access bandwidth, and disseminate information about how to telework securely. “I’m very proud that our staff was able to remain flexible, steadfast, and dedicated to our mission, and creatively problem-solve obstacles in real-time during this time of change,” she said.
