The U.S. International Trade Commission announced earlier this month that Keith B. Vaughn has been officially appointed to the role of agency chief information officer.
The daily tasks of the job aren’t new to Vaughn, who served as USITC’s acting CIO from January through September 2018. Vaughn brings “extensive experience” to the role, according to a press release announcing his appointment, both from his time working in an acting capacity and, before that, as USITC’s chief data architect. In that role, he “provided guidance and input in the design, maintenance, development, reengineering, and replacement of all USITC data-related systems,” the release states.
Prior to joining USITC in 2011, Vaughn was a government contractor.
Now, as CIO, Vaughn will “direct and manage” all of the “information technology activities” of the independent, fact-finding agency. USITC is ranked second among small agencies in the Partnership for Public Service’s annual “best places to work” survey.
