The Office of the Chief information Officer (OCIO) has forged valuable partnerships by bringing together internal information technology (IT) resources, our national laboratories, and strategic networks—both within and outside of the Department—to promote agency-wide innovation and effective operations that provide tangible, positive, high-value outcomes for our nation. We have an aggressive agenda to accomplish and are operating with urgency to enable the Departmental mission. The IT strategy has been transformed to meet the Department’s demanding need. The strategy is designed to:
- Leverage existing information technology and expertise to maximize mission accomplishment and reduce costs
- Identify and foster new and emerging information technology to maximize mission accomplishment and reduce costs
- Provide Departmental it governance, policy, and oversight processes to ensure secure, efficient, and cost-effective use of it resources
- Ensure acceptable risk-based cybersecurity through enhanced enterprise situational awareness, development of near real-time risk management, and combating advanced persistent threats
To further assist, we are actively executing the 25 Point implementation Plan to Reform Federal IT Management and the Digital Government Strategy as part of our efforts and a critical element to DOE mission success. The OCIO is committed to supporting the sharing of best practices across the federal IT community. Improving federal IT management requires not only knowing what does not work, but identifying what does work—and implementing it. Leading the Department’s IT reform initiatives is an exciting privilege, and we intend to bring about positive transformation to better achieve the Department’s unique mission.
