Paul Tibbits, deputy chief information officer at the Department of Veterans Affairs, has said VA plans to consolidate all financial management systems into a single cloud environment, Federal News Radio reported Thursday.

He told the station the department will implement cloud technology as part of the Financial Management Business Transformation program in efforts to protect systems from cyber risks.

“We’re going to a more modern system with stronger security controls built into it. We’re going to a cloud environment,” added Tibbits, who also serves as FMBT program executive officer.

He said he believes assigning a single individual to manage a consolidated network of tagged data is key to manage cybersecurity and workflow.
