VA watchdog seeks CIO

VA OIG SEAL

The office of the inspector general for the Department of Veterans Affairs is looking to hire a CIO.

The chief information officer will also be tasked with serving as the deputy assistant IG for OIG's management and administration division.

The agency announced its search for the dual role in a posting on USAJobs.gov on Jan. 13.

The position will be tasked with handling technical responsibilities across disciplines, including budget preparation and execution, financial management, IT and data analysis, policy development and the digital publication of reports. Duties also include monitoring OIG recommendations, following up on agency progress, procurement and oversight of internal controls. The position is also in charge of advising and providing administrative and resource management support to OIG.

Core technical qualifications include experience with managing a multimillion dollar budget and administrative support for a national organization as well as leadership experience with IT services, data analysis services and desktop and mobile application support.

The OIG employs over 700 people in more than 40 offices across the country. Its budget for FY2016 was just over $136 million. The VA itself spends more than $4 billion annually on IT alone.

The listed salary range is between $124,406 and $187,000, and applicants will also be eligible for relocation expenses.
