The historic mission of the Department of Commerce is "to foster, promote, and develop the foreign and domestic commerce" of the United States. This has evolved, as a result of legislative and administrative additions, to encompass broadly the responsibility to foster, serve, and promote the Nation's economic development and technological advancement.
The Commerce Department's Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) is responsible for ensuring that the Department's programs make full and appropriate use of information technology. It supports the increased use of leading edge technology to enable the Department to carry out its mission better, with improved products and services at the lowest cost. The Office oversees the expenditure of approximately $1.5 billion each year for computer hardware, software, and services, and for networking and telecommunications and other information technology (IT). This is accomplished by the development of policies and other guidance for Department-wide planning and use of IT, and through a capital asset management process centered around a Commerce IT Review Board.
The Office ensures the Department’s compliance with the applicable provisions of the Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996 regarding the management and use of IT resources including (but not limited to):
- Monitoring and evaluating the selection, control, and evaluation of major IT investments, and recommending appropriate actions to the Secretary and/or Deputy Secretary
- Establishing goals for improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the Department’s operations and the delivery of services to the public through the effective use of IT
- Developing and issuing IT policies and guidance throughout the Department, and monitoring and enforcing compliance with such policies and guidance
- Providing IT management and technical assistance services to the Office of the Secretary and designated operating units, and consultative services as requested by Department officials
- Representing the Department in interactions with the Office of Management and Budget and other federal agencies on IT matters, and participating in the activities of the Federal CIO Council.
The Deputy Chief Information Officer and Chief Technology Officer position is located in OCIO, and reports directly to the Chief Information Officer (CIO) as the IT expert, leveraging expertise and knowledge of the changing technological environment. The Deputy Chief Information Officer and Chief Technology Officer is an executive position that will be a key advisor to the CIO, providing vision and leadership for developing and implementing information technology initiatives. The role of the Deputy Chief Information Officer and Chief Technology Officer involves a detailed understanding of new and emerging technologies, establishing a vision for how the Department can leverage new technology to attain the organizations goals, and charting a path to achieve the strategic objectives through the effective use of technology. The Deputy Chief Information Officer and Chief Technology Officer will be involved in a variety of activities aimed at improving the efficiency and effectiveness of IT spending at the Department and will lead the strategic management of IT resources throughout the Department, helping to ensure that programs make effective and efficient use of IT.
