Cooper returns to government to take on new challenge at FAA
Wednesday - 7/28/2010, 4:18pm EDT
Once again, Cooper, who was the first chief information officer at the Homeland Security Department, found the Federal Aviation Administration's Air Traffic Organization met those requirements and lured him back to the public sector.
And Cooper, who started in Sept. 1, 2009, has plenty of ideas of what he wants to accomplish. He has 10 major priorities he wants to work on over the next two years.
Among his biggest goals is to implement IT portfolio management across 400-500 major applications and another 25-30 major IT projects and programs. He says ATO has done portfolio project management on a small scale before.
Another major priority is to be more customer focused to bring more capabilities to understand ATO's mission needs. Cooper wants a to create an office where the business office will have a single point of contact into the IT organization.
He says many of these priorities will turn into procurement opportunities, and Cooper expects to use the FAA's E-FAST vehicle for small businesses for most of the contracts.
