Administration for Children and Families
Curt Coy - Deputy Assistant Secretary for Administration
As if being a chief financial officer isn't tough enough, try being the chief information officer to boot. It is a challenge that Curt Coy has taken on for a number of years. He says the combination may not work for every agency but that at ACF it ensures that IT is leveraged to support the agency's financial backbone and further the mission. Still, Coy says no matter which model you choose, the need for IT and financial leaders to work together is only going to become more crucial as the amount of resources available for IT investments continues to shrink. He also talks about the impact newer government workers are having when it comes to integrating IT into solutions across the board, the resulting impact on the PMA and becoming a shared service provider for grants with a web-based system.
