Fulcher Consulting LLC


Dagne Fulcher is a self-employed consultant to the federal government specializing in workforce planning and strategies for recruitment, retention and development for the Information Technology and Cybersecurity workforce. Dagne also serves as a consultant to Government Executive Magazine helping to plan events and conferences with excellent speakers and topics directly relating to key federal issues.

Dagne is currently leading a Federal CIO Council effort to provide agencies with sample applications and career roadmaps based on the National Cybersecurity Workforce Framework to facilitate adoption of National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) initiatives and work products. These products will establish a baseline of standardized criteria for key federal cybersecurity responsibilities, highlighting competencies, skills, education and experience needed and can be used for recruitment and selection, retention, development and contract management.

Dagne retired from the federal government in 2007. She had served as the IT Workforce Development Program Manager at the Department of the Treasury and for the US Patent and Trademark Office. She also served as a special assistant for the Office of Personnel Management as a liaison on IT Workforce topics, supporting the Federal CIO Council. From 2003 to 2007, Dagne led the development of the government-wide IT Workforce Capability Assessment on behalf of the Federal CIO Council’s IT Workforce Committee. The IT Assessment was noted as the first comprehensive assessment survey of the IT workforce for the federal community and has been used as a model for assessments for the federal Human Resources and Acquisitions occupations. In addition, as a principal and longstanding member of the IT Workforce Committee, Dagne was significantly involved in all major Committee initiatives, including government-wide IT training efforts, IT salary review, development of the IT Career Roadmap, and the IT Exchange Program. Dagne was named as a Fed 100 in 2006 and received several Federal CIO Council awards for her government-wide work.
