Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO)

The Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) has the primary responsibility for information technology and information management for the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), both in headquarters and in the field. The office leads the development and maintenance of the Information Technology (IT) and telecommunications infrastructure to support regulatory decision making and to support food safety, public health, and food security.

OCIO IT Vision

OCIO will securely deliver high-quality information to those who need it, when they need it, and how they need it. We will achieve this in an environment driven by data and information and sustain a quality-focused, highly productive, service-oriented and responsive organization based upon world-class information delivery and infrastructure capabilities.

The Office of the Chief Information Officer achieves this IT Vision by expanding electronic government initiatives to make FSIS OCIO more cost-effective and responsive to citizens, businesses, and other government entities. OCIO provides useful IT solutions that are aimed at streamlining the collection of data, leveraging web technologies, making the Internet/Intranet the method of choice for the reporting and exchanging of information, and making more effective, thoughtful use of our IT resources to reduce the burden on citizens, businesses, and other government entities.

OCIO IT Mission

OCIO will provide FSIS innovative, timely, reliable, and secure business technology services and business value through a thorough understanding of the Agency's mission, knowledge of requirements, strong communication, an agile strategy and a strong customer focus. Our mission will enhance FSIS's role of protecting the food supply and improving our Nation's food defense.

The Office of the Chief Information Officer achieves this IT Mission by providing leadership, guidance, and direction in applying available IT resources to maximize the results of the Agency as a whole and to provide an environment that enables the accomplishment of FSIS OCIO's business strategy. Our commitment to these efforts will ensure that the Agency acquires, develops, implements, and manages IT in a manner that best meets the needs of FSIS OCIO stakeholders and staff and supports sound IT investment decision-making. In so doing, we hope to position FSIS OCIO as an IT leader within the Federal Government.
