Federal 100: Kirit M. Amin

Name: Kirit M. Amin
Title: CIO
Agency: International Trade Commission

Small-agency advocate. With a federal résumé that includes work at the departments of Commerce, State, and Housing and Urban Development, Amin wanted to test his IT leadership at a smaller agency. And at ITC, he passed with flying colors. Under his leadership, the commission successfully responded to a congressional mandate by deploying the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill Petition System, while modernizing its network, redesigning its intranet and closing all outstanding inspector general findings. Amin’s work also extended beyond benefits to his own agency: He advocated for the 96 smaller agencies to get a piece of the Modernizing Government Technology Act pie and to be included on the CIO Council.
