2013 Fed 100

Federal 100: Scott B. Quehl

Scott B. Quehl

Name: Scott B. Quehl
Title: Chief Financial Officer and Assistant Secretary for Administration*
Agency: Department of Commerce

The tech-savvy CFO. Quehl is a man of many titles at Commerce. As chief acquisition officer, he oversees the procurement of more than $2 billion in goods and services, and as chief human capital officer, he is responsible for some 46,000 employees. For the federal tech community, however, he has been a force for smart IT strategy on the CFO Council and a crucial partner for Commerce CIO Simon Szykman. Together, the two executives radically improved their department's performance under the Federal Information Security Management Act and streamlined contracts for computers to cut costs by 35 percent.

* Titles reflect those held when the work for which the award was given was performed.  Quehl has since left the Commerce Department.
