2016 Fed 100
Federal 100: Gisele D. Holden
Name: Gisele D. Holden
Title: Financial Systems Branch Chief and iTRAK Program Manager
Agency: National Science Foundation
The interfacer. Holden led NSF's transformation of its 25-year-old financial system into the state-of-the art, cloud-based iTRAK. She traveled the country to meet with stakeholders and grantees, and laid the groundwork for a smooth transition to iTRAK, which processes billions of dollars in annual funding for federally supported research conducted by colleges and universities. Her leadership style won over skeptics and made NSF one of the few agencies to use a cloud-based financial shared-services system. NSF has quickly reaped benefits, including a rare clean audit in the first year of operation.
