Beth Meinert

Vice President, Director, Center for Government Effectiveness & Modernization

Beth Meinert is vice president and director of the Center for Government Effectiveness and Modernization at MITRE. In this role, she oversees the work of federally funded research and development center supporting the U.S. Treasury Department, Internal Revenue Service, Social Security Administration, and the Department of Veterans Affairs, as well as the FFRDC supporting the US Courts and Judiciary.  The Center for Government Effectiveness and Modernization has a whole of government perspective, with a focus on missions of each of the organizations we serve, but also works the natural interfaces and develops synergies between them to effectively deliver services to our citizens.

Meinert previously directed the Center for Financial and Economic Transformation (CFET), a work portfolio within the Center for Enterprise Modernization (CEM). MITRE operates CEM, a federally funded research and development center, for the Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service. She worked with Treasury and the federal government agencies that provide the financial and economic backbone and safety net of our nation. Under Meinert’s leadership, CEM-CFET has evolved into a systems engineering and analysis partner, capable of addressing the core challenges of these organizations’ missions and transforming their infrastructure to keep pace with the needs of the nation in an increasingly complex environment.

Meinert joined MITRE in 1988 after four years in the U.S. Army. She was promoted because of her technical leadership and management of communications, command, and control functions, eventually serving as director of both the Army Program and the Army Portfolio. As director, she was responsible for establishing and executing MITRE’s support to the U.S Army to assist in achieving its strategic and mission objectives.

Meinert holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Gannon University and is a graduate of the Harvard Kennedy School Senior Executives in National and International Security program.
