From the statement of Renee P.

The NASA Administrator and all of NASA's leadership considers this to be a very high priority. As NASA's Chief Information Officer (CIO), my office provides IT products and services including policy and procedure for all of NASA. Currently about 17,100 civil servants and 40,000 contractors work at nine NASA Centers and one Federally Funded Research and Development Center, as well as several smaller satellite facilities. We also collaborate with space agencies around the world and have deep partnerships with researchers, engineers and scientists all over the world. Each day, hundreds of thousands of NASA personnel, contractors, academics and members of the public access some part of NASA's IT infrastructure -- a complex array of 418 information systems with over 140,000 components geographically dispersed around the globe. This infrastructure plays a critical role in every aspect of NASA's mission, from controlling spacecraft to processing scientific data." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Renee P. Wynn, Jonathan Alboum, and Robert Klopp.
