Roster change

T. Kevin Carroll was tapped this month to head the new Army Enterprise Information Systems office. The organization was established to lead a project integrating the Army's information systems into a comprehensive infrastructure.

The project, known as the Army Enterprise Infostructure Transformation, is intended to reduce the cost of maintaining information systems while improving access to information and applications across the service.

"This is an opportunity to approach things in a truly enterprise manner, which is a really big change," said Carroll, who was program executive officer of Standard Army Management Information Systems.

*** Patrick Schambach reportedly has been selected to become chief information officer and chief technology officer of the Transportation Security Administration. The official announcement is expected soon. He will come to the fledgling agency from the Treasury Department, where he is assistant director and chief information officer for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms' Office of Science and Technology.

***Dorothy Bowers was appointed last week as the new chairwoman of the National Advisory Council for Environmental Policy and Technology (NACEPT).

Bowers is chairwoman of the International Organization for Standardization's Subcommittee on Environmental Performance Evaluation and was a founding member of the Global Environmental Management Initiative.

The Environmental Protection Agency established NACEPT in 1988 to advise the agency on domestic and international environmental policy, management and technology issues.
