As HHS CIO, a position he has had since 2007, Carleton also holds the title of deputy assistant secretary for information technology. In both roles, he is responsible for overseeing departmental IT, including capital planning, investment control, enterprise architecture and information systems, among other duties.

For the seven years prior, Carleton served as CIO of the General Services Administration, where he was credited with improving the agency’s customer-facing web presence and bolstering cybersecurity.

Before that, he served as deputy director of HHS’ Office of Information Resources Management and CIO for the Office of the Secretary.

FedScoop reports Carleton has spent the past several months focused on implementation of the 2010 healthcare reform law, the Affordable Care Act, and the information security of personal medical records.
