FCW : April 15, 2016
38 April 15, 2016 FCW.COM MAHESH HANUMANULA Chief Technology Officer AINS FOIA finisher. Hanumanula took the lead on modernizing the Department of Hous- ing and Urban Development’s system for managing Freedom of Information Act requests. He streamlined HUD’s business processes across 26 program areas and 91 regional and field offices. His implementa- tion of solutions and technical innovation have helped 350 government agencies and offices benefit from his firm’s case manage- ment applications. Next on his plate is deploying the eCase platform for the Office of Personnel Management’s retirement and background-investigation systems. ELLEN HERBST Chief Financial Officer and Assistant Secretary for Administration Commerce Department The customer. A 10-year agency veteran who got her start in the private sector, Herbst spent 2015 advancing a crucial — but sometimes neglected in discussions — side of the shared-services equation: that of the customer. Rather than push her agency to provide shared services, Herbst worked tirelessly to promote the use of them at Commerce. Besides drumming up internal demand, she served on boards and committees at the Office of Manage- ment and Budget, the Office of Personnel Management and the General Services Administration to represent the voice of the agency customer. TIFFANY T. HIXSON Regional Commissioner Northwest/Arctic Region Federal Acquisition Ser vice General Ser vices Administration Categorical success. Don’t let the reference to remote places in the job title fool you. Hixson is in the vanguard of the federal government’s push to more efficient and effective IT buying practices through category management. The initiative seeks to offer agencies a well-rounded set of federal and industry resources for making acquisition decisions. The Office of Man- agement and Budget named Hixson one of 10 federal category managers who oversee spending across the government. She is the executive in charge of the professional services category, which makes her exper- tise invaluable to the IT community. GISELE D. HOLDEN Financial Systems Branch Chief and iTRAK Program Manager National Science Foundation The interfacer. Holden led NSF’s transfor- mation of its 25-year-old financial system into the state-of-the art, cloud-based iTRAK. She traveled the country to meet with stakeholders and grantees, and laid the groundwork for a smooth transition to iTRAK, which processes billions of dollars in annual funding for federally supported research conducted by colleges and uni- versities. Her leadership style won over skeptics and made NSF one of the few agencies to use a cloud-based financial shared-services system. NSF has quickly reaped benefits, including a rare clean audit in the first year of operation. STEPHEN H. HOLDEN Senior Manager Octo Consulting Group Maturity manager. Holden has been part of the federal IT community for 20 years, including a 10-year stint in the Office of Management and Budget’s e-government office. His wide experience with IT policy made him an ideal leader for ACT-IAC’s IT Management Maturity Model. As proj- ect manager, Holden led a 50-person effort to develop standards that would help agen- cies implement the Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act — and he did it in his spare time. The model is a guide for agencies to improve the way they manage IT and, by extension, their ability to execute on their core missions. MAHESH HANUMANULA ELLEN HERBST TIFFANY T. HIXSON GISELE D.
