Jim Flyzik, chief information officer at the Treasury Department and chairman of the CIO Council, this month received the IT Executive of the Year Award from the Association for Federal Information Resources Management.

The association also gave its Congressional IT Leadership Award to Rep. Constance Morella (R-Md.); its Service to the Citizen Leadership Award to Al Pesachowitz, CIO at the Environmental Protection Agency; its Acquisition Leadership Award to Bill Gormley, assistant commissioner for acquisition at the General Services Administration; its Industry Leadership Award to Bob Golas, director of business development for civilian agencies at Oracle Corp.; and its Innovation Leadership Award to Henry Stone, a technical manager, and Alan Sacks, project manager for mission data systems, at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Morella and Rep. Steve Horn (R-Calif.), who have led the House's investigation into how the government is managing Year 2000 fixes, have been appointed to lead a task force that will oversee efforts to address the millennium bug.

Helen M. Wood, director of the Office of Satellite Data Processing and Distribution at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, received the Meritorious Presidential Rank Award. Wood directs the operation of a system that processes and distributes real-time data gathered by NOAA and other environmental satellites.

President Clinton last week nominated Kenneth Prewitt as the next Census Bureau director. Prewitt is currently the president of the Social Science Research Council, which is based in New York City. He would replace Martha Farnsworth Riche, who resigned in January.
