Roster Change

Former treasury chief information officer Jim Flyzik will retire Dec. 17 after 28 years in government service. His retirement will come at the end of his second detail to the Office of Homeland Security, where he has served as a primary adviser to Steve Cooper, senior director for information integration and CIO of the Office of Homeland Security.

There are no definitive plans to name a replacement for Flyzik. However, the office may tap information technology executives to work on particular issues, such as Don Hagerling, chief technology officer at Treasury, to work on the homeland security enterprise architecture.
