Deputy Federal CIO Maria Roat to Retire at End of March

Roat previously served as CIO at the Small Business Administration and chief technology officer at the Department of Transportation.

Deputy Federal Chief Information Officer Maria Roat will be retiring on March 31 after nearly 41 years in federal service.

“Maria Roat has had a remarkable career serving our country — first as a military service member, and then as a federal IT leader,” said Clare Martorana, federal CIO, in a statement, according to Federal News Network. “The role of the deputy federal CIO is crucial in providing a cross-government view of agency challenges and identifying opportunities to scale secure technology and sound data-management practices across government. We are grateful for Maria’s many contributions to our team, and we’re excited to see where her journey takes her next.”

Roat was named deputy CIO in May 2020, replacing Margie Graves after she retired.

Roat previously served as CIO at the Small Business Administration and chief technology officer at the Department of Transportation. She spent more than a decade at the Department of Homeland Security as FedRAMP director, deputy CIO, OCIO chief of staff, CISO, OIT chief of staff, and deputy director of Secure Flight development.

She retired from the U.S. Navy in 2007 after serving more than 25 years on active duty and the reserves. Her duties included serving as Command Master Chief, Center for Naval Leadership Mid-Atlantic Region, and serving three years as a voting member on the Naval Reserve Policy Board.
