54 April 15, 2016 FCW.COM ASHWIN VASAN Chief Information Officer Consumer Financial Protection Bureau The team builder. Vasan built a team of technologists by using remote and term fel- lowships to tap a nationwide talent pool. His approach has been so successful that 18F and the U.S. Digital Service have adopted it. He also helped deliver AskCFPB, an inter- active tool that answers 1,000-plus frequent- ly asked questions, and Owning a Home, Paying for College and Planning for Retire- ment tools designed to guide consumers through major financial decisions. He cham- pioned the adoption of agile development, open-source practices and a cloud-centric strategy, all of which have enabled CFPB to build great public-facing tools while making its own internal processes more efficient. JILL VAUGHAN Assistant Administrator Office of Security Capabilities and Chief Technology Officer Transportation Security Administration Department of Homeland Security Scanner planner. Vaughan is responsible for developing and maintaining the equipment that screens nearly 660 million passengers and 2 billion pieces of luggage annually at U.S. airports. Her office’s Strategic Five- Year Technology Investment Plan set a clear course for enabling TSA to make real-time risk-based decisions and respond to a chang- ing threat environment. Her push to trans- form TSA’s security system has positioned the organization to integrate cutting-edge technology through increased transparency and openness with industry. As a result of her efforts, TSA will replace expensive, cus- tomized technologies and improve security for travelers. NAVIN VEMBAR Chief Technology Officer General Ser vices Administration Platform driver. Vembar took a once- struggling program and turned it into an impressive example of innovation in gov- ernment. His plan for creating the Com- mon Services Platform that supports GSA’s Integrated Award Environment was a cal- culated leap into agile practices and cloud environments. His work led to the agency’s first authority to operate for a cloud-based platform as a service, providing a more secure and more open environment to support agencies that work with federal grants and loans. The platform gives IAE a secure system for delivering new applica- tions efficiently and consistently. ROBERT W. VIETMEYER Cloud Computing Portfolio Lead Office of the Chief Information Officer Defense Department Cloud warrior. Vietmeyer’s nimble, sensi- tive work to resolve the many complex contracting issues tied to DOD being a broker of commercial cloud services cemented his reputation as the depart- ment’s go-to expert on cloud policy. He achieved initial operating capability for the Defense Information Systems Agency to function as DOD’s commercial cloud services broker and started the approval process for initial provisional authority to operate. Vietmeyer also led a diverse team that formulated key strategy documents, implementation plans, security guides, ref- erence architectures and policy documents to achieve DOD’s strategic goals for cloud computing in 2015. FUMIE N. WINGO International Spectrum Policy Lead Department of the Navy Radio tuner. The U.S. military uses radio spectrum for communications, radar, telemetry and other activities, and although the U.S. government can manage electromagnetic spectrum domestically, the country relies on international treaties and policies to ensure that American forc- es can access spectrum worldwide. Wingo was instrumental in advocating for U.S. positions at the International Telecommu- nication Union’s World Radiocommuni- cation Conference. Her coalition build- ing, technical work and advocacy helped advanced the Navy’s spectrum policy goals and bring about a positive outcome for the U.S., including the protection of spectrum used to access satellite services.
