How would you like to run the Navy's IT?

help wanted ad

Are you a great leader who understands enterprise IT systems, identity and records management, cybersecurity, privacy, capital planning and more? Does having a hand in world's largest computer network outside the public Internet sound appealing? And oh, do you happen to have a Top Secret/SCI security clearance?

If so, the Department of the Navy might like to talk to you about being its next CIO.

A USAJobs.gov listing, posted Dec. 2, outlines the core requirements for the job. Pay could range as high as $181,500.

The Navy, of course, already has a CIO -- but Terry Halvorsen has been plenty busy since May as the acting CIO for the Defense Department as a whole. And Halvorsen has not been acting much like an "acting" at DOD -- the 2010 Federal 100 winner has changed procurement policy to accelerate cloud adoption, pushed to get Joint Information Environment pilot projects out the door, and otherwise eschewed the idea of simply serving as a temporary caretaker.

The Navy listing reinforces the sense that Halvorsen is not returning to his old job anytime soon. Interested applicants have until Dec. 16 to apply.
