GPO names CIO

Tracee Boxley GPO CIO

The Government Publishing Office promoted Tracee Boxley to the CIO post. Boxley has served as acting CIO since November 2016, and first came to the agency in 2006 as a senior customer advocate for IT. In her new job, she'll be responsible for the budgeting for IT systems and program costs.

Boxley has deep public sector experience, including a senior post at the Census Bureau, where she had responsibility for the software data center during the 2000 Census, and a stint as deputy CIO at the Food Nutrition Service program at the Department of Agriculture. Boxley launched her federal IT career in the Office of the Secretary of the Army, where she was director of IT operations.

"Tracee's IT background and knowledge of GPO will provide leadership to this critical position, as the agency continues to meet the ever-changing technology requirements of Congress, federal agencies, and the public," said GPO Director Davita Vance-Cooks in a statement.

GPO has been active on the digital front in recent years, including effort to digitize historical collections of the Congressional Record and making congressional bill text available for bulk download. Internally the agency has modernized legacy infrastructure and improved its cybersecurity posture, according to a news release announcing Boxley's promotion.
