Education Department looks to staff back up in CIO shop

The Education Department is looking for a new deputy CIO.

In a May 9 job posting, the agency asks for a deputy who can adeptly manage an existing tech portfolio, keep track of current and upcoming legislation and advise the CIO on new technology developments.

The search for a deputy CIO comes on the heels of two significant departures.

In February, longtime CIO Danny Harris testified about personal conduct issues in a particularly rough congressional grilling. He retired three weeks later.

Harris was replaced by then-Deputy CIO Steve Grewal, but Grewal reportedly left Education earlier this month. EdScoop reported that Education’s IT Director Ken Moore is serving as acting CIO.

An Education spokeswoman did not return a request for comment on this story.

The deputy CIO position will pay between $123,175 and $185,100. Candidates need to be capable of obtaining a top secret security clearance.

Education plans to take applications until May 31, according to the job posting.
