FCW : April 15, 2016
26 April 15, 2016 FCW.COM ZELMA A. “FLIP” ANDERSON JR. Executive Director of FITARA Operations Agriculture Department The binder guy. Anderson assembled a team to craft USDA’s plan for implement- ing the Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act and met with agency leaders to orchestrate the CIO’s place in acquisition oversight. An ever-present symbol of those efforts was the binder containing USDA’s developing plan, the text of FITARA and the White House’s implementation guid- ance, which Anderson carried with him everywhere. As USDA Deputy CIO Joyce Hunter said, “In addition to our CFO, Flip is probably the only person I know who has read and can recite each section of the law.” USDA’s plan was among the first to be approved by the Office of Management and Budget. BETH ANGERMAN Executive Director Unified Shared Ser vices Management General Ser vices Administration Selling the shared experience. Angerman’s expertise with shared services is so valu- able that the Treasury Department is shar- ing her with GSA to build governmentwide expertise and expand shared services across scores of other agencies. She was detailed to GSA in October to lead the new USSM office, which is responsible for shaping the federal strategy for shared services across functions, providers and consumers. Angerman is a stickler for the savings, efficiencies and innovation that shared services promise to bring to individual agencies and the government as a whole. SAMEER K. ANTANI Staff Scientist U.S. National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health Lifesaving screener. Tuberculosis is a major cause of death among people living with HIV/AIDS, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. Antani, who saw an opportunity to take “something from the lab and make it physical,” led NIH researchers in develop- ing a system to automate the screening of digital chest X-rays for pulmonary abnor- malities with a special focus on TB. The system is being beta-tested on a mobile chest X-ray truck traveling through rural western Kenya. Antani’s system could save lives by facilitating expert diagnosis in minutes instead of days and providing critical decision support to clinical officers in the field. DANIEL J. BALASH IT Program Manager Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers Department of Homeland Security Virtually on target. Marksmanship training for federal law enforcement agents has long relied on in-person, live-fire ranges. Moving that activity to the virtual world can save ammunition, reduce wait times and help the environment, but the idea has had a hard time gaining traction. Balash made the case for virtual firing ranges at DHS. By harnessing his passion for the system of laser handguns, projectors and cameras, he managed to fully integrate the technology into FLETC’s marksmanship programs. CAROL BALES Senior Policy Analyst Office of Management and Budget The visionar y revisionist. OMB’s Circular A-130 is the go-to rulebook on everything related to computer and information secu- rity in the federal government. Its 75-plus pages cover budgeting, planning, acqui- sition and more, and Bales has been in charge of the latest revision to the complex document. Her dedication and decade of experience at OMB have served her well in revising A-130 to reflect a wide range of policy updates that have come down on acquisition, cybersecurity, information governance, records management, open data and privacy in the 15 years since the circular’s last revision.
