Kurt DelBene spoke this week about how small contractors can get up to bat for more Veterans Affairs IT projects, and discussed how too much parsing on major federal initiatives – like, which he helped rescue – can lead to failed strategy.

Kurt DelBene, chief information officer at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ Office of Information and Technology, hosted a media briefing Tuesday to talk about how he aims to break down silos and unify contractor and government teams to drive results.


To foster collaboration and innovation and bridge the gap between government employees and contractors, DelBene said the VA’s silo-breaking strategies center on joint project reviews and recognizing the critical role played by contractors.
