FCW Insider: Vajda to leave Education, go to OMB on detail


Bill Vajda, the Education Department's chief information officer, has told staff members that he is resigning and moving to the Office of Management and Budget. He would be on detail to OMB in the next few weeks.

Vajda will be working on issues such as the Trusted Internet Connection program.

Vajda became the Education Department CIO in August 2006. [Here is the FCW story…here is the official Education Department press release from back then.]

No word yet on who will replace Vajda. It is unclear if it will be Brian Burns, who is Education's deputy CIO.
