The Department of Commerce's mission is to enhance economic opportunity for the American people and to meet the ever-changing demands of the global economy. ITA is the Federal agency responsible for working with industry to promote American exports and expand international trade through the development of partnerships, monitoring of and compliance with trade agreements, and other trade related services. ITA is a globally-based bureau of the Department of Commerce and includes 109 offices in the United States, 126 offices in 78 countries, and approximately 2400 employees.
The Chief Financial and Administrative Officer (CFAO) combines executive leadership and direction of the International Trade Administration’s (ITA) financial and administrative functions. The CFAO serves as the principal senior executive in ITA responsible for long-term planning for, and integration of, financial, human administrative support services. As such, the incumbent assures that organization and financial management structures support ITA efforts to foster a culture that unifies the workforce in support of its strategic goals. The CFAO is responsible for establishing policies to govern the development, management, administration, and coordination of ITA’s overall financial and administrative management. The CFAO must apply the experience of successful private and public sector examples that enhance employee effectiveness and productivity through effective executive direction in the application of financial and administrative processes and policies and that reflect consideration of “best practices” in financial and administrative management.
