According to the listing, the new CIO will be “responsible for overseeing the acquisition and integration of the FBI’s information resources and will provide IT portfolio management, recommend IT program improvements, and coordinate and review the agency’s IT budget to both ensure technology initiatives are aligned to FBI objectives, and sufficiently agile to adapt to the evolving needs of FBI operations.”
