The Intelligence Community Chief Information Officer (CIO) is responsible for advancing the IC's mission by driving secure collaboration, integration, and information sharing; identifying and addressing information enterprise risks; and providing strategic leadership and oversight of the IC's enterprise architecture and enterprise information technology. As we took a look at our current strategic resource planning, the Chief, IC Enterprise Architecture and the Chief IC Systems Integration are key positions to achieve statutory requirements, maintain architectural consistency, and enable effective planning, programming, and oversight of IC technology investments. Our inability to fill these critical positions after repeated attempts through internal means degrades the Architecture Integration Group's (AIG) ability to meet its responsibilities and achieve greater integration across the IC and with external partners.

Mandatory Requirements:

-Expert program management, analytic, and critical thinking skills, including the ability to conduct program and management assessments, identify needs and requirements, and develop non-linear process improvement recommendations for implementation across the IC.

-Expert experience providing leadership, oversight, and guidance; managing and mitigating risks, assessing customer requirements, identifying dependencies, and developing responsive project plans; and estimating costs and other resources using quantitative analysis to project requirements.

-Superior interpersonal, organizational, and problem-solving skills, including a demonstrated ability to work effectively both independently and in a team or collaborative environment.

-Expert ability to communicate complex information orally and with writing in a clear, concise manner targets and meets the needs of diverse audiences with different perspectives and objectives.
