Not all federal workers are affected by the political aspects of presidential
transition, but some still are playing their own game of musical chairs.
The Interagency Management Council officially placed
Thomas Wiesner at the head of its table for the upcoming year. The IMC is
made up of representatives from cabinet agencies and advises the General
Services Administration on telecommunications issues.
Wiesner, the Treasury Department's director of the Office of Corporate
Systems Management, replaces Robert Bubniak, acting chief information officer
at the Department of Veterans Affairs, who was chairman of the IMC for two
years during the transition to FTS 2001.
Later this year, Wiesner will try out another chair. As part of the
reorganization of Treasury's CIO office, Wiesner will become director of, securitywhich means he'll tackle not only information security but also
physical and personnel security.
