FCC CIO David Bray: IT a Shared Responsibility for Agency Execs

1 min read

itDavid Bray, chief information officer at the Federal Communications Commission, has said he believes that government CIOs should help their agencies’ C-level executives to understand how technology can support organizational missions, Federal News Radio reported Wednesday.

Jason Miller writes Bray worked to help the commission rethink of how it does business through projects such as data center migration to a public cloud infrastructure.

He told Federal News Radio that FCC spends nearly 50 percent of the agency’s annual IT budget to operate and maintain legacy systems compared with 85 percent spent on systems O&M two years ago.

“This gave us enough fuel to modernize the remaining systems at the commercial provider to move commercial cloud platforms,” he added, according to the report.

Bray said he also believes that agencies should engage industry and the public to transform the way government services are delivered.
