Rory Schultz

Deputy CIO at USDA - Food and Nutrition Service
Alexandria Virginia
Timezone: America/New_York

Rory D. Schultz is a 26 year federal employee with 20 years experience in IT customer service, 17 of which have been in leadership positions. He began his Federal career as a summer intern and research analyst with the Executive Office of the President during the Reagan Administration. After several summers, he returned as a GS-4 Research Analyst with the Records Management Branch at the Department of the Treasury. Over the next 25 years, he was steadily promoted through increasingly complex and more responsible positions, at times running the Copier program, the Asset Management Team, and the User Services Branch within the CIO’s office.
Currently he holds the title of Deputy Chief Information Officer at USDA-Food and Nutrition Service, an agency of the US Department of Agriculture. He is responsible for Infrastructure Operations Support and Customer Support, overseeing FNS’s network, mail and data servers, VTC, and telecommunications systems, and the IT Service Desk which provides end user support. Additionally, he is responsible for introducing new technology solutions and processes to FNS.
Prior to this position he served as the Director, HQ IT Operations, and was responsible for the complete scope of end user computing at Treasury Headquarters, including the LAN, MAN and SAN, Service Desk, Deskside Support, Customer Advocates, Application Development and Maintenance, Wireless and VTC support, and Disaster Recovery. Previously, he was also responsible for the Treasury Secure Data Network (TSDN) and Treasury Foreign Intelligence Network (TFIN), two classified networks which were subsequently established as a separate office after he developed the organizations.
Mr. Schultz holds a degree in Political Science with a minor in Theater (useful attributes in Washington) and is also active in external organizations such as ACT-IAC (American Council for Technology-Industry Advisory Council), having graduated from the Partners program in 2008 and serving as a vice-chair for the Voyager class of 2010 and Chair for the Voyager class of 2011. He serves on the Treasury Historical Association (THA) Board of Directors and is a docent for the historic Treasury Building on weekends. He is a strong advocate of personal growth and promotion from within, with many of his former staff now having moved into leadership roles of their own. He encourages Industry-Government Partnerships, as evidenced by the successful ten year Seat Management contract which provided IT services to Treasury HQ until September 2009.
He is single and lives in Annandale VA with his two dogs, Reese and Lilly. An avid Giants and Yankees fan, his hobbies include reading from his library of over 1000 volumes, gardening, online computer gaming, brewing beer, collecting fine cigars, and hiking and camping.
