The Office of Personnel Management looks for a full-time chief information officer to oversee the agency’s information technology operations as well as its digital transformation and cybersecurity efforts.
OPM said in a USAJobs notice posted Wednesday the CIO will be responsible for the development, implementation and management of IT systems that will form the backbone of human capital functions in the federal government.
The chosen candidate will also develop DevOps, agile development and bi-modal IT models as well as implement a workforce strategy for OPM to attract and retain professionals who can help secure the agency’s infrastructure.
The new CIO will also support an interagency team to establish a National Background Investigations Bureau as part of federal security clearance and investigation reform efforts.
He or she will succeed Lisa Schlosser, who has served as OPM CIO in acting capacity since March 17.
