About OCIO


The DOL Chief Information Officer (CIO) position and the DOL Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) was established by the Secretary of Labor in 2000 as a result of the Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996. Secretary's Order 3-2003 delegates authority and assigns responsibility to the CIO.
