2018 Fed 100

Federal 100: Sandra McGill

Name: Sandra McGill
Title: Director, Enterprise IT Portfolio Office
Agency: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

A change agent for CDC. McGill saw the Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act as an opportunity to empower the 19 organizations within CDC by giving them the data they need to advance critical missions. She shifted the focus from mere compliance to true transformation. Thanks to McGill's leadership, CDC's IT governance practices are now guided by the agency's new IT Strategic Plan, which details five goals and 19 objectives through 2021. Last year, McGill also led virtual sessions to train nearly 700 employees and contractors on best practices for IT project management.
