Priscilla Guthrie to leave CIO job at ODNI, report says

EDITOR'S NOTE: This story has been updated to clarify Priscilla Guthrie's title. She is the Intelligence Community CIO within the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

The Intelligence Community will lose its CIO, Priscilla Guthrie, on Nov. 19, according to a report.

James Clapper, the director of national intelligence, made the announcement Nov. 16 in an e-mail message sent to ODNI employees, Federal News Radio reports. In the announcement, Clapper wrote that Charlene Leubecker, currently the deputy CIO, would be acting CIO.

Before becoming the Intelligence Community's CIO in ODNI in May 2009, Guthrie was director of the information technology and systems division of the Institute for Defense Analyses, a not-for-profit corporation that administers three federally funded research and development centers. From 2001 to 2006, she was deputy CIO at the Defense Department.

We've corrected the title. Thanks!

Ms. Guthrie was not the ODNI CIO, she was the IC CIO - the CIO for the entire intelligence community. That's a minor but very important point for a community.
