Bureau of Information Resource Management
The Bureau of Information Resource Management, headed by Acting Chief Information Officer Karen E. Mummaw, provides the information technology and services the Department needs to successfully carry out its foreign policy mission by applying modern IT tools, approaches, systems, and information products. It is expanding the use of collaborative information development and refinement to provide end users with the most accurate and useful information.
IRM constantly strives to improve its commitment for transparent, interconnected diplomacy, information systems and to incorporate new technologies for the advancement of U.S. foreign policy. Equally as important, the bureau is focused on enhancing security for the Department's computer and communications systems. IRM continues to aggressively confront these issues by strengthening IRM employee expertise and by enhancing the Department's information technology.
