The Delaware state Department of Technology and Information (DTI) on May 5 announced two new key appointments – Jordan Schulties as chief of administration, and Tammy Shelton as Delaware broadband infrastructure grant manager.

Most recently, Schulties was director and chair of the Delaware Economic Development Authority, and before that was business finance director and deputy director of the Delaware Division of Small Business.

The DTI said the CAO position that Schulties is taking over is “responsible for ensuring the financial viability of the department and providing the leadership of administrative support functions including personnel, finance, budget, procurement, contract administration, and vendor management to support high-impact technology solutions that innovate government practices.”

Schulties also will lead “the continuous process improvement and directs the development and implementation of a well-defined strategic roadmap that charts the future direction, development, and growth of the agency,” the DTI said.

Shelton’s elevation to her new position marks a promotion after joining the DTI in 2021 as part of the office’s broadband team.

She brings to the position many years of experience in the telecom industry, and in her new position will work with Federal, state, and local government agencies to coordinate and facilitate operations and activities of the DTI’s broadband initiatives.

“These include strategic planning, establishing budgets and cost estimates, reviewing and executing vendor contracts, and required reporting,” the DTI said, along with being the primary contact for broadband service providers, government organizations, citizens, and other stakeholders.
