Haycock to leave OMB

Bob Haycock, the Office of Management and Budget's chief architect, will be leaving his post to return home to Denver by April 17, OMB officials confirmed today.

Haycock assumed his position at OMB in November 2003 after serving as acting chief architect since June 2002. He came to OMB from the Interior Department, where he was the deputy chief information officer of the Bureau of Reclamation in Denver. He will return there as deputy CIO at the DOI National Business Center, OMB officials said.

As chief architect, Haycock led work on the federal enterprise architecture through the Federal Enterprise Architecture Program Management Office. He has been involved with the development of the architecture's five reference models from its early stages. Most recently, he and OMB officials were putting together the final piece of the enterprise architecture: the data reference model.

Haycock came to the job with 27 years of federal government experience that began when he was a management intern at the Agriculture Department after graduate school. Since taking the OMB job, Haycock has commuted almost every weekend back to Denver, where his wife, Robyn, lives.

Haycock could not be reached for comment on his leaving, and OMB officials were unable to confirm the date of his departure.
