Federal 100: Yemi B. Oshinnaiye

Placeholder

Name: Yemi B. Oshinnaiye
Title: Division Chief, Enterprise Infrastructure Division, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
Agency/Company: Department of Homeland Security

Pushing transparent transformation. Oshinnaiye has been an integral part of USCIS’ efforts to digitize the legal immigration process. He led efforts to transform the agency’s systems and infrastructure to support several public-facing initiatives. As a result, many forms can now be processed and updated online, and the new unified environment for applicant data allows immigration officers to access information quickly and deliver a better customer experience. Thanks to Oshinnaiye’s efforts, USCIS support centers have significantly reduced call duration and the time it takes to renew a green card — a substantial achievement for a program that has over 3 million applicants a year.
