DOE to get new CIO
The Department of Energy will replace interim CIO Don Adcock with Michael Johnson, assistant director for intelligence programs at the Office of Science and Technology Policy at the White House.
Adcock took over the acting CIO position last September after Bob Brese left government for the private sector. When Adcock stepped in on an interim basis, he retained his position as deputy CIO. He will reportedly move back into the deputy position when Johnson begins his new job on March 9.
Johnson's appointment was first reported by Nextgov.
Johnson will step into a position that oversees policy and oversight of DOE's $2 billion IT budget spread across more than 25 national laboratories and facilities that enable federal missions from advanced research to nuclear security. As interim CIO, Adcock led initiatives in open data, cloud computing and energy-efficient IT strategies.
