Dan Chenok, Office of Management and Budget's branch chief for information policy and technology is leaving that post to go to the private sector joining SRA International Inc., Federal Computer Week has confirmed.

SRA president and chief operating officer Renato DiPentima said that Chenok will work directly for him. Chenok will be a vice president at SRA starting soon after the new year.

"He will be reporting across all our businesses to help us understand how we best can add value for all our customers," DiPentima said. "He will be a corporatewide asset helping us to grow our business."

Chenok has been a central figure in e-government efforts. He leads a staff responsible for OMB's oversight of federal policies on electronic government, computer security, privacy, budgeting for information technology, information dissemination and related issues.

Chenok also advises senior White House officials on major policy decisions in these areas. And he works closely with the Chief Information Officer's Council and other interagency groups to coordinate federal actions on information policy and information technology.

Chenok started his career as an analyst with the Congressional Office of Technology Assessment, co-authoring a series of reports on the impact of technology on the economy. He graduated cum laude from Columbia University with a bachelor's degree in history and English, and received a master's degree in public policy from Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government. He is married and has two daughters.

Tad Anderson, portfolio manager for the e-government projects, has been promoted to associate administrator for e-government and IT projects.
