Pentagon CIO to exit in April

Art Money, the Pentagon's chief information officer, has been asked by the White House transition team to vacate his office by April 13, according to Defense Department sources.

Money, a holdover from the Clinton administration, has been asked to leave as part of the new president's normal "housecleaning," according to one DOD source. The source said that Money has been asked to leave by April 13, but he will exit April 6.

Money wears two hats in the department: CIO and assistant secretary of Defense for command, control, communications and intelligence. He was sworn in as ASDC3I on Oct. 5, 1999, but actually has filled both positions since February 1998.

Money and his staff were asked earlier this year to stay on for a time while the Bush administration worked out its transition plan.

Paul Brubaker, the Defense Department's deputy CIO, already has departed. On March 19, he will become president of e-government services at Commerce One Inc., an electronic marketplace solutions company.

Money has not yet announced where he will go next.

Money has more than 40 years of management and engineering experience in defense electronics and intelligence and has developed intelligence collection analysis capabilities and airborne tactical reconnaissance systems.

He also has served as assistant secretary of the Air Force for research, development and acquisition and was CIO of the Air Force from January 1996 to February 1998.
