FCC Issues Final Rule on CIO’s IT Responsibilities

The Federal Communications Commission introduced a final rule to direct the agency’s chief information officer to play a “significant role” in developing FCC’s information technology capabilities. The FCC CIO will play a bigger role in IT oversight, management and governance; decision-making process for budgeting, multiyear and annual planning, programming and reports related to IT; and recruitment of IT personnel, according to the document.

The commission’s CIO will also work with budget officials and chief financial officer to specify and approve FCC’s IT budget consistent with the recommendations from the head of the Office of Management and Budget and provisions of appropriations measures.

FCC plans to publish the new policy on Tuesday in the Federal Register.
