FCC Names Calvosa CIO
Monday, February 04, 2019 | Comments

Christine Calvosa was named the FCC’s chief information officer (CIO).

Calvosa was the acting CIO for the FCC for over a year and for several years was the FCC’s deputy CIO for technology and resiliency. During her time as the FCC’s acting CIO, she oversaw information technology for the 28 GHz auction and led implementation of the FCC’s updated and modernized national broadband map.

“I am delighted that Ms. Calvosa will be serving as the FCC’s CIO,” said FCC Chairman Ajit Pai. “The FCC’s aggressive agenda requires an expert and agile information technology team. That team needs a leader with deep expertise in all aspects of IT development, deployment and information security. This is especially important because Congress last year enhanced the responsibilities of the FCC’s CIO — responsibilities the FCC recently codified in our rules.”

Prior to joining the FCC in 2014, Calvosa served as chief technology officer (CTO) at the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), the second-largest agency within USDA. From 2005 to 2010, she was a senior consultant for management oversight and information technology for multiple federal agencies, including the U.S. departments of Defense, Treasury and Homeland Security.
