Department of State Prepares to Stand Up IT Procurement Office

1 min read

The Department of State is establishing a new office for the data-driven procurement of enterprise information technology services, Fedscoop reported Thursday.

A new IT Acquisitions Office within the department will operate by spring 2020, according to the official in charge of managing the future organization.

Ken Rogers, acting deputy chief information officer of business management and planning at the Bureau of Information Resource Management, leads the future office's creation.

The new organization's establishment stems from an inspector general review that recommended IRM to realign strategies. IRM is the state department's IT management agency.

IAO will consist of four main units: IT acquisition, a contracting technology office, service execution and vendor performance management.

Rogers is now working to transition contracting personnel into IAO, with updated policy and professional functions.
