Dana Deasy Calls on Agencies to Consider Senior Executives for Federal Tech Jobs

1 min read

Dana Deasy, chief information officer at the Defense Department, has urged agency leaders to consider employing mid- to late-career private sector executives eligible to work for the government, FedScoop reported Monday.

Deasy said at the American Council for Technology and Industry Advisory Council’s 2018 Imagine Nation ELC event that government agencies should recruit both young and experienced workers to replace IT employees planning to retire.

The former JPMorgan Chase global chief information officer is set to spearhead DoD’s modernization program, which will involve adopting a multicloud environment, incorporating artificial intelligence in defense operations and expanding the department’s technology workforce.

Deasy noted there is a need for the DoD to share the weight of its mission to future employees, as it completes its modernization initiatives.
