leave a comment »

I mentioned last night that OMB is preparing to come out with a memo detailing the role of federal agency chief information officers.

Today on Federal News Radio’s Daily Debrief with Chris Dorobek and Amy Morris, we spoke with Transportation Department CIO Dan Mintz about his views of the role of the CIO. You can hear that interview here. [.mp3]

But I have also pulled Evans comments about the memo so you can hear them for yourself. You can find them here.

DorobekInsider: FBI CIO retiring

leave a comment »

Federal Computer Week and CNet are reporting that the FBI CIO Zalmai Azmi is stepping down.

Zalmai Azmi, FBI’s chief information officer since 2004, announced he will be retiring from government Oct. 17.

This from the CNet report:

The biggest challenge for his successor, Azmi said, “will be maintaining those relationships. More than anything, it’s about the transparency we’ve brought.”

Azmi’s last official day will be October 17, and he said his successor will likely be named a few weeks after that. From a large pool of applicants from the public and private sectors, the bureau has narrowed its choices to candidates from the private sector.
