Tem appoints Daryl Woodard to DOC board
Senate President Pro Tempore Greg
Treat announced Monday his appointment of Daryl Woodard of Tulsa
to the board of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.
Woodard is the chief executive officer of SageNet, a Tulsa-based
technology firm. He is Treat’s first appointment to the Department
of Corrections (DOC) board.
“Across the board, state agencies have not kept up with the
pace of technology and digital advancement. As we sort through important
issues like criminal justice reform, it’s critically important
that we have real, measurable data and analytics. The issue is not
simply a matter of money, it’s a matter of strategic, innovative
thinking. Daryl Woodard is a successful leader in the world of technology
and Internet infrastructure, a background that will suit him to
work with agency leaders and other board members to assist DOC in
a digital transformation. I very much appreciate his willingness
to serve our state, and know that Daryl Woodard will do a great
job on the DOC board,” said Treat, R-Oklahoma City.
Woodard founded SageNet in 1998, focusing on designing, installing,
managing, and servicing networks for multisite retail customers.
He previously owned and operated other tech firms including Stonebridge
Technologies, Inc., a custom application development company.
Woodard earned a business administration degree from the University
of Illinois. He is involved in many local charitable and civic organizations.
“State government agencies can learn and leverage a lot through
data and analytics, just like private businesses. As our state navigates
through criminal justice reform, it’s important that lawmakers
have access to data to understand as much as possible the impact
of their policy decisions. I am honored that Pro Tem Treat selected
me to serve, and I am very excited to get started. I look forward
to working with DOC leadership and other board members,” said
Government accountability measures signed into law earlier this
year give the Senate pro tempore two appointments to the nine-member
board of the Department of Corrections (DOC). The governor has five
appointments to the DOC board while the House speaker has two appointments.
The same bills give the governor the authority to hire, fire, and
set the salary of the DOC director.
