Today, each TSA employee is a customer of information technology (IT). Most of us rely on IT during our everyday work through TSA computers, phones, email, Intranet, and mission-critical software applications. The TSA customer base encompasses a broad spectrum of IT desired capabilities. Some of us are technically confident and fully self-sufficient while others of us are less familiar with information technology. The Office of Information Technology (OIT) strives to support this diverse customer base by delivering great IT products and services that support the mission and business IT requirements for every office throughout TSA.
OIT provides centralized management and leadership of TSA's information technology needs. OIT is committed to using best practices, streamlining business processes, improving performance, and striving for excellence in support of TSA’s mission. To that end, OIT will:
Provide vision and leadership for developing and implementing TSA IT initiatives.
Develop, coordinate, implement and manage central policies and procedures for all of TSA's IT requirements.
Manage and oversee an effective security architecture that protects TSA's information systems and networks from internal and external threats.
Develop and implement enterprise-wide common applications and systems resulting in efficient, cost-effective, secure and interoperable solutions to customer requirements.
Ensure compliance with applicable laws, rules and regulations, including the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993, the Clinger-Cohen Act, OMB Circular A-130 ("Management of Federal Information Resources"), and the Federal Information Security Management Act.
As always, OIT welcomes your feedback and engagement as we collaboratively support the mutual goal of improving our national security.
