State CIO Swart stepping down for IMF post
Thursday - 6/28/2012, 6:14pm EDT
Swart, whose new appointment takes effect in August, will also serve as the associate director of IMF's Technology and General Services Department.
State Department CIO Susan Swart
The State Department confirmed Swart will depart in August.
"In a strong field of global candidates, Susan demonstrated expertise with the technology challenges of the kind faced by the Fund and has a distinguished record in delivering high quality IT services in a public sector environment," said IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde.
Swart, a member of the Senior Foreign Service, joined State in 1989, attaining a number of high-ranking positions and overseas assignments.
As CIO, she leads the department's Information Resource Management (IRM) Bureau and oversees State's total IT budget of about $1 billion.
One of the cornerstone initiatives she worked on as State CIO was a desktop and data-center consolidation plan known as the State Messaging and Archive Retrieval Toolset, or SMART.
Under her watch, State also began piloting projects for mobile applications.
Swart earned her undergraduate degree from Virginia Commonwealth University and a Masters degree in national security studies from the National War College.
