The OISM also ensures and provides appropriate supporting infrastructure, IT security, applied research, and assistance to NIST staff, collaborators, and clients in the conduct of NIST’s scientific, engineering and administrative programs and in the dissemination of information. The CIO has authority and responsibility for centralized IT functions including telecommunication, networking, Web services, integrated information systems, knowledge systems, and other IT infrastructure support services. The CIO advises the NIST Director and Deputy Director on all aspects of IT management to ensure state-of-the-art computing and networking facilities that integrate and support an enterprise-wide heterogeneous information technology environment for NIST.
