Former deputy federal CIO Roat leaned on her relationships to achieve results

Before Maria Roat retired at the end of March, she made sure one important initiative was well on its way. The former deputy federal chief information officer said the effort to create shared calendar and collaboration tools across all agencies is on the right track. The next federal deputy CIO needs not only to pick up this collaboration initiative and others, including modernizing the IT workforce, but also establish strong connections and understandings on the budget side and with agency CIOs. Roat joined Federal News Network Executive Editor Jason Miller on this week’s Ask the CIO.
