Energy picks deputy CIO

Donald Adcock, DOE

Donald Adcock joined the Energy Department in April 2012.

The Energy Department has settled on a new deputy CIO, FCW has learned.

Donald Adcock, who has been serving as associate CIO for energy IT services, is expected to assume his new duties as DOE’s deputy CIO on Dec. 30, according to inside sources speaking on background. He will succeed Robert F. Brese, who moved up to the agency CIO position in July 2012.

In his most recent role, Adcock has been responsible for leading and delivering mission-critical IT services for DOE, according to his bio on the agency’s website.

“Mr. Adcock provides strategic leadership and operational oversight of the department’s primary IT infrastructure and is responsible for implementing the Office of the CIO’s services transformation activities and for providing secure, national-level decision making capabilities for the Secretary of Energy, his advisors and the principal leadership of the department,” his bio states.

Prior to coming to DOE in April 2012, Adcock served as the executive director of the Army IT Agency, where he was based at the Pentagon.
