FCW : June 30, 2016
Trending federal IT projects that GAO studied had their risk underestimated by agency CIOs 60of96 8 June 30, 2016 FCW.COM The Federal Communications Com- mission plans to complete its move to a cloud-based comment system by the end of the month. The new Electronic Comment Fil- ing System has already been avail- able online in beta, and FCC plans to have completely transitioned to the new system by late June, wrote Alison Kutler, chief of the agency’s Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau, and CIO David Bray in a June 1 blog post. “Today, the pub- lic expects to be able to easily sub- mit comments in digital form and to have conve- nient access to all the other input received by the commission, and the commission needs a robust system capable of meeting the public’s expectations,” they wrote. “In 1996, when ECFS was first cre- ated, it simply replicated the process of filing comments on paper,” they added, but since then, the comment volume has increased, and outside organizations have come to expect easier access to government data. The system will run on Amazon Web Services’ cloud computing plat- form, which offers rapid scalability should a comment surge hit FCC. It also incorporates a public application programming interface so that exter- nal groups can submit comments in large batches. The final move to a modernized commenting system comes on the heels of FCC’s massive push to move all its servers off premises. The slight- ly delayed transition was ultimately a success, Bray said in a September 2015 internal email message. — Zach Noble KEENUSA.ORG FCC revamps comment system Alison Kutler Join the conversation FCW uses Twitter to break news, field questions and ask our own.

Gen. Patricia Frost, former deputy commander for operations at Army Cyber Command, will lead it. The directorate is expected to have full operational capability later this summer. Jamie Berryhill has stepped down as chief of policy, planning, budget and communications at the Office of Management and Budget. The post now goes to Sean Casey. Casey has been the project lead on the Obama adminis- tration’s proposal for a $3.1 billion IT Modernization Fund for legacy IT systems. Berryhill is taking a position with the U.S. mission to the UN’s Organization for Economic Cooperation and Devel- opment, based in Paris. Department of Veterans Affairs Chief Information Security Officer Brian Burns left the agency earlier this month, according to a departmen- tal email obtained by FCW. Since April 2015, Burns had simul- taneously served as deputy director of the VA/DOD Interagency Program Office, where he helped lead the effort to make VA’s homegrown VistA interop- erable with the Defense Department’s electronic health records. A year after a devastating data breach and several months after its previous CIO quit, the Office of Personnel Man- agement is in the market for a perma- nent CIO. Clifton Triplett, OPM’s senior cybersecurity adviser, said the agency is planning an “aggressive” modernization of its applica- tion suites and wants the next CIO to lead that charge. The two-pronged push will support the modernization of applications that underpin the nascent National Back- ground Investigations Bureau and those integral to OPM’s retirement system. The next OPM CIO will also be charged with protecting an agency whose shoddy cybersecurity enabled the 2015 breach of the personal data of more than 20 million federal employees. Kymm McCabe, founder of Value Storm Growth Partners and former ASI Government CEO, has joined Deloitte, where she will focus on the firm’s digital practice with the federal government. She told FCW her primary goal is “help- ing to engage with the clients...to devel- op and execute solutions to try to bring their organizations and their missions into the digital space.” — FCW staff FCW Insider: People on the move Brig.
