Federal Chief Information Officer Steven VanRoekel highlighted a year of change in the federal information technology landscape on Thursday with a post on the White House blog.
VanRoekel talks about the success of the Techstat sessions, the Presidential Technology Fellows Program, data center consolidation, share services and a whole host of other federal IT landmarks from the past year.
As I reflect on my first 120 days as Federal CIO, it is astounding to consider all of the incredible work each agency has accomplished within the IT Reform Plan and elsewhere. I was very lucky to have stepped into an office with an agenda that had significant momentum and leadership partners that were driving aggressive reforms across each of their agencies. We have a great vision for the future of Federal IT that builds upon these accomplishments, but the accolades for the difficult and numerous accomplishments that have occurred over the past year rests firmly in the hands of each Agency, each CIO and the thousands of Federal workers who have executed on the reforms over the last year. I look forward to continuing to build upon these achievements together to enable our government to deliver for the American people more efficiently and more productively.
