Federal 100 winner: Robert Childs

Robert Childs

Senior director of the Information Resources Management College

National Defense University

Childs has led several innovative information technology teaching programs.

In 2008, IRMC awarded 340 certificates across IT disciplines and held a Virtual Worlds Symposium and executive seminars on privacy and Government 2.0. The college also offered two new cross-boundary academic certificate programs: the Government Strategic Leaders and Chief Financial Officers programs. Childs also led an IRMC initiative to support reconstruction efforts in Iraq that involved college faculty traveling there to hold a workshop attended by nine senior Iraqi IT officials.

“Under Dr. Child's leadership the Information Resources College has grown to be one of the top IT management educational institutions in the world,” said David Wennergren, the Defense Department’s deputy chief information officer. “Dr. Childs has shown himself to be a true visionary on issues of information management, innovation and leadership, and his personal dedication in creating the next generation of information leaders has provided tremendous value across government.”
