Marty Wagner, associate administrator in the General Services Administration's Office of Governmentwide Policy, last month was named an ex-officio member of the CIO Council. Although he is not a chief information officer, Wagner was named an ex-officio member because of his office's role in providing funding and support for the CIO Council's Liaison Office.
