Will EPA's Lisa Schlosser become federal deputy CIO?

Federal CIO Vivek Kundra is expected to name the Environmental Protection Agency's Lisa Schlosser to be federal deputy CIO, Chris Dorobek, editor of DorobekInsider.com, announced on Twitter today. The item was not on Dorobek's site as of early this afternoon.

Schlosser is principal deputy associate administrator of EPA’s Office of External Affairs and Environmental Education. Previously, she was director of EPA’s Office of Information Collection. She served as CIO at the Housing and Urban Development Department from 2005 to 2008.

She was also an executive at the Transportation Department, where she held the positions of associate CIO for IT security and associate CIO for IT investment management.

She began her career as a military intelligence officer in the Army. Following her military service, she held several positions in the private sector, including vice president of business operations and response services at Global Integrity, senior manager in Ernst and Young's security solutions branch, and director of information security services at Troy Systems.

Schlosser did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

What a horrible choice of someone who is does not follow direction, always involved in personal agendas and undermines other officials. This is an example of more cronyism within the Obama Administration. Also, she was fired at EPA!

Lisa's appointment would be a great victory for everyone interested in good government and good people and additionally, for me, good friends.
