OCC Chief Information Officer Bajinder Paul Named to Fed 100
WASHINGTON — Office of the Comptroller of the Currency's Chief Information Officer Bajinder N. Paul earned recognition today as one of Federal Computer Week's "Federal 100" for 2008.
The "Federal 100" award program has recognized federal employees and contractors who have made a significant impact in the government's use of information technology for nearly 20 years. This year's awards honor individuals who have been "Agents of Change."
"Bajinder is a true agent of change and is helping the OCC take better advantage of technology to improve its productivity and security," said Comptroller of the Currency John C. Dugan.
Mr. Paul became the Chief Information Officer at the OCC in October 2007. Prior to joining the OCC, Mr. Paul served as Acting CIO and the Deputy CIO of Information Technology Operations at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and has held key information technology management positions at the Department of Justice and at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).
Since the first "Federal 100" award in 1991, the program has honored people within the federal information technology community who improve the workings of government and its services to its citizens through their innovation, leadership, and hard work. This year's winners will be honored at an awards dinner on March 24 and featured in the March 24 edition of Federal Computer Week.
