CIO Organization Strategic Plan 2020-2023: Introduction

Last Updated: April 27, 2021



This plan is the product of a collaborative effort between the CIOO and our business stakeholders who contributed their insight and knowledge of Information Technology (IT) challenges, needs, and opportunities.

CIOO Vision

We value each other, have a healthy culture, and are the most respected and trusted information and technology organization within the Federal Government. We achieve this in collaboration with our partners to provide secure, reliable, and resilient capabilities that deliver business value.

CIOO Values

Our values represent guideposts for how we interact and function at work. They are not meant to replace the FDIC values but rather provide additional guidelines for how to conduct work to meet our objectives and realize our CIOO Vision.


  • Communicate respectfully, collaboratively, and effectively with one another and our business partners
  • Foster a participatory, collegial, open-minded, and diverse environment
  • Mutually support each other to achieve goals and deliver results

Prefessional Responsibility

  • Work well with diverse groups and uphold a mindset that seek opportunity and problem solving


  • Deliver solutions efficiently and effectively within budget
