FCW : March 30, 2015
27 March 30, 2015 FCW.COM THE2015FEDERAL100 March 30, 2015 FCW.COM 26 JUDY COHEN RAY COLEMAN REP. GERRY CONNOLLY KATHY CONRAD CHERYL COOK Judy Cohen Vice President Aquilent Ms. Fix-It and more. Cohen played a crucial role in the successful relaunch of HealthCare.gov in time for open enrollment in 2015. She and her team provided full life-cycle support for the relaunch, develop- ing the tool that streamlined the applica- tion process while enhancing website security. Cohen also led the creation and development of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ first Amazon Web Services hosting capability. In addition, she is mentoring six rising leaders at Aquilent, has held many leadership roles in ACT-IAC and volunteers at the Children’s Inn at the National Institutes of Health. Ray Coleman CIO Natural Resources Conservation Service Agriculture Department Agile hero. When tasked with fixing the multiyear Conservation Delivery Streamlin- ing Initiative, Coleman adopted an agile “fail fast” methodology and turned the massive IT project around in one year by delivering incremental capabilities one step at a time with a small budget. Tim McCrosson, a policy analyst at the Office of Management and Budget, said Coleman had “the courage to go against the grain and do something that hasn’t been done in a long time.” Rep. Gerry Connolly Congressman U.S. House of Representatives Reforming IT acquisition. Without Con- nolly’s support, the Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act might have languished in Con- gress as a pet project of controversial Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) . Instead, Connolly will monitor the law’s implementation from his perch on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) called Connolly “a true leader in efforts to improve the federal govern- ment’s acquisition and use of information technology.” And although Issa has joked that Connolly has often been “the bane of my existence,” he praised his colleague for being an “advocate for technology and improvement in the government sector.” Kathy Conrad Principal Deputy Associate Administrator Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies General Services Administration All about the outcome. Look closely at almost any governmentwide IT initiative and you’re likely to find Conrad involved behind the scenes. In 2014, those efforts — which included 18F, the Presidential Innovation Fellows, identity management and cloud security, to name but a few — kicked into another gear as she ran OCSIT in an acting capacity for much of the year. Conrad put extra effort into making sure FedRAMP steadily improved and keep- ing all the stakeholders in the loop as the program evolved. Cheryl Cook CIO Agriculture Department Mission matters. Being an effective CIO takes more than technical prowess; a thorough understanding and clear con- nection with the mission are essential as well. That’s what makes Cook so success- ful as USDA’s CIO: She is deeply familiar with how programs work and how they’re implemented thanks to her experience in other areas of the department. Last year, she helped USDA expand the technologi- cal support for its highly mobile workforce beyond email and launched an innova- tive mobility management-as-a-service platform. 26 March 30, 2015 FCW.COM 0330fcw_022-047.indd 26 3/9/15 2:19 PM
