Department of the Treasury
Wayne Leiss - CFO/CIO
Increasingly, the same person who serves as the Chief Financial Officer at an agency also serves as Chief Information Officer at that same agency. This is true at the Office of Thrift Supervision at the Treasury Department, where Wayne Leiss wears both hats. He says that being the CFO means better accountability with the IT department. His department is also working on its transition to the centralized federal payroll system. Leiss also talks about the transition to a new generation of telephones that operate on the same network infrastructure as his agency's computers.
