GSA's Bajinder Paul to change agencies

revolving door

The Federal Trade Commission has found its new chief information officer.

FTC officials confirmed Bajinder Paul, deputy associate administrator of citizen services and innovative technologies at the General Services Administration, will replace former FTC CIO Jeff Huskey, who left the agency in March.

Paul has a lengthy resume in IT management, the last three years of which have been spent at GSA. Previously, he served nearly four years as CIO at the Treasury Department's Office of the Comptroller of Currency, a combined three years as acting CIO and deputy CIO at the Department of Housing and Urban Development and four years at various positions at the Justice Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

 Paul is a two-time Federal 100 winner. He earned the award in 2008 for creating a Web portal to provide nationwide access to all types of housing disaster assistance while at HUD and again in 2010 at Treasury, where he launched an IT modernization strategy built on business-driven architecture, cloud computing and Web-based tools.
