Federal 100: Thomas "Pat" Flanders
Thomas "Pat" Flanders
Deputy Assistant Director for Information Operations and CIO
Defense Health Agency
Faced with the challenge of managing the technology costs associated with the centralization of medical care facilities under DHA, Flanders developed a custom web-based tool called Ektropy that tracks technology costs, contracts, workforce and programs. It encompasses more than 10,000 personnel and almost $2 billion in IT budget. The system, which is designed so that even non-experts can use it, allows for centralized planning, financial transparency and the elimination of redundancies across the enterprise. Ektropy also supports Flanders’ goal of developing an army of IT “cost warriors” who place a high priority on personal and financial accountability within an IT organization.
