Haycock is named to connect <br>e-gov projects

The Office of Management and Budget earlier this month created a chief architect position to manage its 24 e-government projects and work on the overall federal IT framework.

Norman Lorentz, OMB’s chief technology officer, said Bob Haycock earlier this month assumed these responsibilities when he took over for Debra Stouffer on a 90-day detail. Stouffer is now the Environmental Protection Agency’s chief technology officer.

“Bob will connect the dots as the solution architects for the e-government projects decide on which applications are going to be used,” he said at last week’s Secure E-Business conference. “The solution architects will make the component architecture real.”

The solution architects’ two basic tasks are to plan what technologies will be used and how they will interconnect, Lorentz said.

Haycock, who was the deputy CIO for the Denver office of the Interior Department’s Bureau of Reclamation and worked on the Quicksilver process, will head the solution architect working group and direct the enterprise architecture process, Lorentz said.
