Casey Coleman, CIO, GSA
In two years as the GSA's CIO, Casey Coleman has standardized, consolidated, and began virtualizing the agency's infrastructure, while incorporating ITIL best practices to cut costs and improve cybersecurity and IT performance. She's also expanded the GSA's telework program.
Most recently, Coleman has emerged as a key player in the Obama Administration's cloud computing initiative, as federal CIO Vivek Kundra has pegged GSA as a "center of gravity" for the initiative. She has worked with Kundra to develop the forthcoming GSA Storefront, which will provide agencies with a streamlined approach to procuring cloud-based resources.
The GSA, with a $550 million IT budget, is also responsible for the data.gov and recovery.gov Web sites. Some of the GSA's other major IT investments include a property management and inventory system used by the GSA Public Buildings Service, a shared-services operation that provides financial systems for itself and other agencies, a long-running order processing system called FSS-19, and online shopping source GSA Advantage. Going forward, the GSA will also be focusing more on identity and access management, Coleman said earlier this year.
Coleman has been an active public presence for the agency, launching her public blog Around The Corner in December, keeping an internal blog, and becoming highly active on Twitter. Coleman is also president of the nonprofit Association for Federal Information Resources Management and a frequent public speaker.
Before becoming CIO, Coleman was CIO of the GSA's Federal Acquisition Service, headed the GSA's office of citizen services, and worked as a software and systems engineer at Lockheed Martin.
