Kelly Fletcher

Golden Gov: Federal Executive of the Year

After serving as the principal deputy CIO at the Department of Defense, Fletcher moved over to the Department of State last year to be its CIO and assistant-secretary level head for the Bureau of Information Resource Management. In her current role, Fletcher oversees the department’s $2.5 billion IT and cybersecurity portfolio. Fletcher’s government career has focused on technology and strategic resourcing domains. Before DOD, she was the deputy director for program analysis and evaluation at the Department of Homeland Security. When talking to FedScoop about the department’s IT strategy in May, Fletcher said the agency is “hungry for technology,” data and data analytics, and is looking for “a lot of experimentation” on emerging technologies.
