OPM hire means top detailees go back to their real jobs

The Office of Personnel Management's hiring of David DeVries as CIO is having a domino effect on IT personnel.

Two top-level IT officials who were provisionally detailed to positions outside their agencies while OPM was between permanent CIOs will return to their previous posts.

Lisa Schlosser, who filled in as OPM's acting CIO, will return to her position as deputy administrator in the Office of Management and Budget's Office of E-Government and Information Technology, where she has served since 2011.

Margie Graves, who temporarily took over Schlosser's position at OMB, will return to the Department of Homeland Security as deputy CIO, where she has served since 2008.

Graves confirmed the moves to FCW at an Aug. 25 event sponsored by FedScoop.

Schlosser's and Graves' cross-agency assignments resulted from Donna Seymour's resignation as OPM CIO in February in the aftermath of the breach that exposed some 22 million personnel records.
