Focusing on six words: Helping government do its job better

DorobekInsider: Who’s going to be the acting Interior CIO?

with 3 comments

So Mike Howell has reported for duty at his new post as the Office of Management and Budget’s deputy administrator for e-government and information technology, the federal government’s senior career IT position. But people are still awaiting word on who will be the Interior CIO — acting or otherwise.

Most people believe that Jerry Williams will take that post. Williams, of course, joined Interior earlier this year, replacing Ed Meagher, who retired from government service to join SRA. But there is an ongoing — dare we call it conflict — between Interior headquarters and the bureaus and there are some who believe one of the Interior bureau CIOs would be better suited to the post.

I keep checking to see if the new CIO post has been filled. I don’t believe it has yet, but if somebody knows more then I do… let me know.

As we say in radio, stay tuned.
