From CIO to CFO at ATF

The chief information officer at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Marguerite Moccia, has been appointed the bureau's chief financial officer and assistant director for management.

She replaces Bill Earle, who also held both titles. Moccia was CIO and assistant director for science and technology for about three years and previously served as the bureau's deputy CFO.

In her new role, beginning in early July, Moccia will be closely involved with the Justice Department's plans to move to an enterprise financial management system using the American Management Systems Inc. product she installed several years ago while deputy CFO, she said. She will also oversee personnel, acquisitions, asset management and finance at ATF and plans to work closely with the new CIO -- who has not been named yet -- to advance portfolio management and enterprise architecture.

During her tenure as CIO, Moccia is credited with advancing the bureau's seat management efforts by moving to a performance-based contract, which was awarded to EDS last January. She also led the emphasis on information security, ensuring that all systems are certified, and worked to engage business leaders in the technology process.

Moccia has almost 30 years of federal government experience, including more than 20 years in financial management at the departments of Treasury and Defense, where she began her federal service soon after graduating from the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.
