Swart successfully led three high-profile IT projects: consolidation of the department’s desktop computer network, creation of a tracking process for development of the department’s new State Messaging and Archive Retrieval Toolset, and departmentwide adoption of new collaboration tools. The programs have greatly enhanced the work of the department’s 50,000 employees, both in the United States and in 285 diplomatic posts around the world.

“Her outstanding performance demonstrated the exceptional bureaucratic, diplomatic and intellectual skills she devoted to ensure significant onward progress,” said Charles Wisecarver, principal deputy chief information officer.
