Drew Myklegard

Federal Leadership

Drew Myklegard joined the Office of Management and Budget as its deputy federal CIO in January 2022 after serving in various roles in the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for over eight years. While at the VA, Myklegard was executive director of product engineering and led the rollout of VA’s Lighthouse Application Programming Interface Platform, which allowed veterans to share health and benefits data with third parties. Myklegard has also served as an intelligence and operations manager in the U.S. Army and is an active member of the Army Reserves. When asked by FedScoop in September about what he sees as the administration’s greatest IT achievements, he pointed to its “zero trust” architecture, saying they’re “seeing on-the-ground change.”
