Connecticut CIO to leave

Connecticut Department of Information Technology

Connecticut chief information officer Rock Regan sent out a letter today announcing that he is stepping down Aug. 1 following the change in administration in the state.

Regan is the longest-serving state CIO, holding the Connecticut position for more than seven years. He has helped put in place many statewide infrastructure projects, including the Connecticut Education Network, which will connect all of the state's K-12 schools, the public libraries, and the college and university campuses by 2005.

He was president of the National Association of State CIOs from 2001 to 2002. He started several national initiatives, including the State Information Sharing and Analysis Center, to share information about security incidents nationwide and governmentwide.

In his letter to NASCIO members, Regan mentioned the spirit of collaboration and innovation among all of the state CIOs and the support of many vendors.

Former Connecticut Gov. John Rowland stepped down last month following revelations that he had accepted tens of thousands of dollars worth of gifts. Lt. Gov M. Jodi Rell was sworn in on July 1 and will serve out the rest of Rowland's term through 2007.
