OMB fills IT policy post

Dan Chenok, a veteran technocrat in the Office of Management and Budget,

has been named chief of the Information Policy and Technology Branch of

the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.

In that job, he could become the Clinton administration's chief architect

and enforcer of information technology policy.

Chenok had been acting branch chief since September, replacing the former

chief, Bruce McConnell, who left to head the International Y2K Cooperation

Center. After watching the world's computers successfully roll over into

the new millennium, McConnell left government to start an international

consulting firm.

The OMB declined to make Chenok available for an interview.

Chenok joined OMB in 1990 as a policy analyst. He previously was a policy

associate for Jobs for the Future and served as a researcher at the Congressional

Office of Technology Assessment before that.
