Since 1994, Domich has served as the assistant director in Boulder for NIST's Information Technology Laboratory. From June 1998 until September 1999, he served as acting director of ITL's operations at NIST headquarters in Gaithersburg, Md., and in Boulder. He was recently selected to lead a team that will develop a new strategic IT plan to prepare NIST for the future.

She previously was senior policy analyst for the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the Information Policy and Technology Branch at the Office of Management and Budget. Huth worked at OMB for six years, including a position on the staff of Year 2000 czar John Koskinen.

Steve Cochran was recently named vice president for technology at the Council for Excellence in Government. Cochran, who has been working with the council for three years, was most recently director of the Technology Leadership Consortium. Joiwind Williams has replaced Cochran as director of that effort.

Ron Ross was recently named president of Compaq Federal. Ross will replace Gary Newgaard, who left Compaq in March (see related story).

Previously, Ross served as president of CACI International Inc. and headed up Computer Sciences Corp.'s government team. Prior to working in the private sector, Ross was a National Security Agency employee.

Ross will be responsible for overseeing the computer manufacturer's federal division and will report directly to Compaq Computer Corp.'s president and chief executive officer, Michael Capellas.
