Roger Baker's last day as the Veterans Affairs
Department's assistant secretary for
information and technology and chief
information officer is March 8. He said the
agency manages and oversees IT much differently than it did four years ago.
March 7, 2013
In the Department of Veterans Affairs, it took two years and a big culture change to raise the rate of on-time deliveries of IT projects from below 30 percent to just shy of 90 percent. But according to VA's CIO, those changes amount to his department giving itself its own budget increase.
The agency puts employees in pools based on their expertise, and then the employees move from project to project based on the needs of that program. VA now is working on 60 percent more projects than under the previous approach.

The Office of Management and Budget will ask agencies to conduct their second survey of data centers in the last nine months, but this one will have an eye toward major consolidation.
Agency CIO Roger Baker tells a House oversight committee that VA avoided spending $54 million on the 45 projects stopped in July. The money now will be used on other high priority programs. The Veterans Affairs Committee also wants to increase agency IG funding by $50 million.
