This is the first public appearance of Steven VanRoekel, the Chief Information Officer of the United States, since his appointment by President Barack Obama in August 2011. VanRoekel, who was a visionary leader at Microsoft and the FCC, will share his priorities for the Federal information technology (IT) landscape and his vision for how technology can enable the government to do more for the American people, even as we face constrained resources.
Steven VanRoekel is the second Chief Information Officer of the United States, appointed by President Obama on August 5th, 2011. Mr. VanRoekel plays a key role in ensuring that the Federal Government is operating, in President Obama’s words, “in the most secure, open, and efficient way possible.” VanRoekel works closely with the chief technology and performance officers.
Mr. VanRoekel directs IT policy, strategic planning of Federal IT investments, and oversight of Federal technology spending. He establishes and oversees enterprise architecture to ensure system interoperability and information-sharing, and maintains information security and privacy across the Federal Government. VanRoekel’s priorities include openness and transparency, lowering costs, cybersecurity, participatory democracy, and innovation.
