James Eric (Jimmy) Jones, chief program officer for the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board, will move over to the Department of Transportation to work for the chief technology officer.

In a note on his Facebook page, Jones said he is leaving the Recovery Board effective April 17 to begin working April 19 at the DOT, "supporting the Chief Technology Officer” on multiple IT projects. He did not specify a job title, and did not respond to requests for comment.

Maria Roat, former director of the General Services Administration's Federal Risk Management and Authorization Program (FedRAMP), became DOT CTO in August 2014.

The Recovery Board is an independent agency created under the economic stimulus act of 2009. As chief program officer, Jones has been responsible for daily operation of some of the board's major projects, including FederalReporting.gov, Recovery.gov and FederalAccountability.gov.
