David Nelson

Chief Information Officer

Nuclear Regulatory Commission


The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is absorbed in an agency wide transformation journey.  This transformation was based on the realization that the future is now, and, the agency is operating in a dynamic environment propelled by unprecedented advancements, change, and innovation.  While the NRC’s digital transformation has been central to supporting every phase of the larger Agency-wide transformation, the digital transformation began four years ago driven by a variety of external factors and internal demand.  NRC Chief Information Officer David Nelson will discuss how this digital transformation was planned and executed, share some examples of how it has contributed to the resiliency of the agency while adding new capabilities, and provide a glance into how the agency is planning its digital roadmap to the future.
