FCW : November 15, 2012
Dave Wennergren, assistant deputy chief management officer at the Defense Department, and Thomas Mesenbourg Jr., acting director of the U.S. Census Bureau, received the Roger W. Jones Award for Executive Leader- ship from American University s School of Public Affairs for being chief change- makers in the federal government. The two men have helped improve the quality of gov- ernment services to Americans and in uenced the careers of the next generation of federal employees, said Barbara Romzek, dean of the School of Public Affairs. "They epitomize dedication to public service, and we challenge our students to strive to emulate these two outstanding individuals as they embark on their future careers," she said. For more than three decades, Wennergren has sought to bridge organizational boundaries and rally all sides to reach shared goals. In 2007, he worked with several agen- cies to align their computer secu- Trending 10 November 15, 2012 FCW.COM With elections over and the scal cliff looming, legislators are now turning to sequestration, the debt limit and a number of other issues that stalled during the 112th Congress. Election results will shape the politics and pro- ductivity of the lame-duck session, but experts at a TechAmerica event in October suggested other signals to watch: • The tone of both parties messages. • When leaders from Capitol Hill and the White House meet to dis- cuss sequestration. • Who takes the lead in those negotiations. • How they address sequestration. Panelists said another factor plays into the lame-duck session as well. Paul Carliner, who worked on appro- priations for Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) before moving to the private sector, noted that nearly 60 percent of lawmakers will have served six years or less when the next Congress convenes. "You re dealing with a group that does not have a long institutional memory on how these types of big things [get] done," he said. "It will be messy." A number of new initiatives are exploring the best ways to deal with BYOD and its inherent security con- cerns, including pilot projects at NSA, DOD and the Department of Home- land Security that test security across different devices. The search for ways to take advantage of the ben- e ts of BYOD without introducing a new attack surface for adversaries is promising, the conference panel- ists said. Although there are still areas of serious concern to be addressed --- liability being a critical one, they noted --- there s no denying the power of the BYOD movement. "It s happening across the corpo- rate landscape, and there s a ground- swell of interest and implementation in corporate America," Plunkett said. "Not surprisingly, if it s proven suc- cessful in a corporate environment... it [makes its way] into the govern- ment. We have to tread very carefully. But there are cost ef ciencies and exibility...and that provides a lot of opportunities." According to Carey, the under- taking is much bigger than just the devices or the mobility trend. "At the end of the day, this is really about getting to a place where some- one can render a more complete deci- sion faster or conduct a transaction in near-real time," Carey said. "These devices are not about anything more than that." rity controls under Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 with the goal of enhancing network security, mini- mizing costs and enabling vendors to develop products that can be shared across agencies. Wennergren received a Federal 100 award and the presti- gious Eagle award for his HSPD-12 work. More recently, he per- suaded DOD and the Department of Veterans Affairs to adopt a com- mon health record system. Inside DOD, he led the way in setting up Common Access Cards to secure computer net- works and military bases worldwide. And the Enterprise Software Initiative, which Wennergren championed, saved more than $4 billion by consolidating licensing agreements at DOD. The General Services Administration has adopted the model. Mesenbourg became the Census Bureau s deputy director in 2008 at a time when budgetary and techno- logical problems threatened to under- mine the decennial census. Under his leadership, the bureau partnered with hundreds of thousands of groups to ensure the success of the 2010 census.
