Baker is widely recognized for transforming the federal government's second largest IT department into a customer-driven, quality-based and results-oriented organization. The Program Management Accountability System (PMAS) he introduced was credited with dramatically improving project success rates and produced significant cost-savings. It also provides the foundation for the federal government's TechStat, PortfolioStat and IT Dashboard programs. Under his leadership, the agency was a leader in the adoption of new and emerging technologies, such as mobile devices to improve healthcare and empower Veterans. He was also a powerful advocate for standards-based systems and open source software within VA, and restored the agency's reputation as a trusted guardian of Veteran's personally identifiable information (PII).At the U.S. Department of Commerce, Baker was recognized for modernizing the agency's IT systems and processes. During his tenure, he introduced new e-commerce capabilities, strengthened IT management, reduced operating costs and supported the decennial census. He also played a leadership role in defining the role of the federal CIO following passage of the Clinger-Cohen Act.
