DHS Acting CIO Margie Graves on Current DHS Challenges

During the Federal News Radio Executive Forum, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Acting CIO, Margie Graves provides a unique insight on the department. In her remarks, she described the challenges that currently face DHS as “dramatically cultural”. This candid statement, however,was accompanied by a seemingly contradictory emphasis on the importance of maintaining the independent component cultures. According to Graves, component cultures are essential to mission accomplishment and is what an employee “feels” when they come to work in the morning.

The title of this week’s Executive Forum, July 22nd at 2pm, is “Building Government’s Future Infrastructure – Progress & Best Practices”. The program will discuss:
  • Progress Report on the Networx Contract & Transition in the Federal Government
  • Progress & Best Practices on Navy NMCI & DHS ONE-NET
  • Critical Issues on Optimizing Government’s Infrastructure
  • Lessons Learned
  • A Vision for The Future
Participants include:
  • Karl Krumbholtz- Director Network Services Programs-ITS/GSA
  • Margie Graves- Acting CIO, Dept of Homeland Security
  • Tim Quinn – Chief Infrastructure Officer, Department of Interior
  • David Smith- Chief Technology Officer, Citrix Systems
  • Gary Depreta- Manager-Channel Operations, Federal Channels, Cisco Systems
  • Michael Donovan- Chief Technologist, EDS
