Stuart McGuigan, chief information officer of the State Department, said the COVID-19 pandemic prompted the department to accelerate the deployment of collaboration and productivity tools to remote employees in order for them to perform critical work, FedScoop reported Wednesday.

“We had this existential demand that the longer we took to provide access to these applications, the longer people were unable to work at all,” he said Wednesday during the AFCEA Bethesda 2020 Tech Summit. McGuigan said he wants the culture change as a result of the pandemic to continue within the department.

“The ability to dynamically form a team, share information, share analytics, make a decision, and then execute is something we want to continue,” he said.
