DLA makes CIO choice official

The Defense Logistics Agency officially made Mae De Vincentis its chief information officer Monday.

De Vincentis had served in an acting capacity since April. As CIO, she also serves as DLA's information operations director.

Also on June 4, Capt. Rod Turk took De Vincentis' place as acting program executive officer for business systems modernization at DLA headquarters in Fort Belvoir, Va., De Vincentis said.

A Navy supply officer, Turk is former executive director for enterprise business systems at DLA, a particularly challenging position because DLA's field offices have acted autonomously in buying software and designing systems.

Turk will now oversee Accenture's contract to develop a supply chain system to replace two 1960s-era mainframe logistics systems by 2004. Accenture has delivered its system blueprint and plans to review the software for modernizing business systems with DLA in July, De Vincentis said.
