After more than three decades of government service, Defense Information Systems Agency CTO David Mihelcic is stepping down. His official retirement ceremony will be Feb. 21 at DISA headquarters.

Mihelcic has been with DISA for 19 years, according to an agency announcement. He has held the CTO job since 2005. He also spent 14 years with the Naval Research Laboratory, with a short private-sector stint at SRI International in between.

As CTO, Mihelcic was responsible for the DISA's Global Information Grid Convergence Master Plan, which aims to put most Defense Department applications on a common network. He also has been actively involved in DISA's cloud broker efforts and the development of MilCloud, and was an early proponent of open source software in DOD with the launch of Forge.mil. Cyber and network security were important parts of his portfolio as well.
