In his role as Chief Information Officer, Weddle leads the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) use of information resources, to improve the operations and service delivery of the agency's programs. He advances the achievement of the agency's mission by assisting senior management in recognizing where information technology can add value while transforming or supporting program operations. Additionally, Weddle advises the Executive Director, in partnership with other senior managers, to ensure management's needs are addressed, to market innovative uses of technology and to facilitate management's access to needed information resources.
  • Modernizing IT infrastructure and upgrading databases has progressed -- and the CPSC is looking past FY 2007
  • Security awareness is a big concern when it comes to teleworkers and those working in remote locations -- but the CPSC is making sure all employees are aware of the risks.
  • Preparing for IPv6 is a big project -- but the CPSC is already ahead of the game
