Office of the Chief Information Officer

The role of the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) is to provide the Federal Election Commission the computer support it needs to administer and enforce the campaign finance laws. Its mission is to ensure that all end users, agency employees and the public, are provided a stable and robust technology infrastructure which would allow them to have the functionality needed to perform their day to day responsibilities. This objective is met by the combined efforts of all branches within OCIO working together with the program and administrative offices of the Commission.
