Treasury CIO Michael Duffy will return to Justice

Michael Duffy, the Treasury Department’s chief information officer, will return to the Justice Department, where he spent a decade and a half.

A Justice Department spokesperson confirmed today that Duffy would be rejoining Justice in the Office of the Chief Information Officer. Duffy’s new position and start date were not provided.

As Treasury CIO, Duffy serves as that department’s principal adviser on information technology and he’s responsible for acquiring and managing information resources and developing policies to maximize the value of technology investments, according to his biography on Treasury’s Web site.

Before being appointed CIO and deputy assistant secretary for information systems for Treasury in September 2007, Duffy spent 15 years with Justice, including time as deputy chief information officer, according to his biography. He directed the development of Justice’s law enforcement and counterterrorism information-sharing strategy and deploying a multi-agency tactical wireless communications system.

His previous positions at Justice included director of telecommunications, director of information management and security, and program manager for the Justice Consolidated Office Network.

Duffy started working for the federal government in 1987 as a Presidential Management Intern at the Health and Human Services Department, according to his biography.
