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.
