Miller joins Homeland transition

Executive order

Starting today, Ronald Miller, the Federal Emergency Management Agency's chief information officer, will take his involvement with the proposed Homeland Security Department one step further as he becomes a member of the administration's Transition Planning Office.

President Bush created the office by executive order June 20 to lead the administration's efforts in laying the foundation for the more than 22 federal organizations that will move to the proposed department.

Tom Ridge, the president's homeland security adviser, serves as director of the office within the Office of Management and Budget.

Miller has been working for months with a team of federal information technology officials under OMB and the Office of Homeland Security to develop the IT architecture for the proposed department. Most recently, he served on the investment review team considering which planned IT investments will go forward to support the proposed department.

Rose Parks, FEMA's deputy CIO, will serve as acting CIO while Miller is on detail to the transition office, Miller said.
