Navy Department CIO Robert Foster is leaving his current job for the post of deputy CIO at the National Credit Union Administration.

A Navy spokesperson confirmed to FCW that Foster's last day on the job will be Aug. 19.

There's no official word on Foster's replacement; the current principal deputy CIO is Kelly Fletcher.

Among other accomplishments at the Navy, Foster promulgated policy cracking down on personal use of department systems and IT, and putting commanders and civilian managers on notice that they were responsible for lapses on their watch.

Foster joined DON in June 2015 after two and a half years at Department of Health and Human Services as deputy CIO. Prior to that, he was deputy CIO with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Foster served 21 years in the Navy.

Federal News Radio first reported the news.
