Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) announced Nov. 20 that he has been named chairman of the High Tech Task Force, a group of technology-minded Republican senators who advise other members of Congress on technology issues that face them.

Sen. Trent Lott (R-Miss.), who established the task force in 1999, asked Ensign to be its chairman because of his involvement in high-tech issues. For example, Ensign's Dot Kids legislation, which has passed the Senate and the House, would create a "safe zone" on the Internet under the ".kids.us" subdomain.

Ensign also is on the Senate Commerce Committee, which has jurisdiction over most issues facing the high-tech community, such as Internet privacy, Internet taxation, telecommunications, cyber-terrorism, and broadband deployment.

Kay Coles James, director of the Office of Personnel Management, on Nov. 19 introduced her final selections of four key executives who will help lead OPM into a dramatic realignment plan.

The new organization will combine the current 12 "stovepiped" departments into four central divisions that will encompass broad specialties and are designed to provide a more efficient, coordinated response to the needs of the federal community.

The head of each of the four new divisions will carry the title of associate director and will assist the OPM director in implementing the reorganization.

The new associate directors are:

* Ron Sanders, who will direct the Human Resources Program Development division. Sanders, comes to OPM from the Internal Revenue Service, where he had been chief human resource officer for the past four years. In his new role, Sanders will focus on the development of HR policies and programs that govern how agencies manage their human resource programs.

* Stephen Benowitz, who will oversee the Human Resources Products and Services division. The new division will centralize the products and services that OPM provides, such as retirement services, federal employee insurance programs, executive management and training, and examining and testing services. Also under Benowitz's direction is OPM's investigations operation, which will process more than 1 million national security-related background checks in the coming 12 months. Benowitz previously was director of strategic management planning at the National Institutes of Health.

* Clarence Crawford, who will be associate director for management and chief financial officer. The management division will unify many of OPM's internal management processes, including internal HR, finance, contracting and information technology. Prior to coming to OPM, Crawford was chief financial officer and chief administrative officer for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

* Marta Brito Perez, who will lead the Agency Merit System Accountability and Human Resource Programs division. Perez joined OPM in March 2002 after having served as director of the Office of Human Resources for Montgomery County. Md. In her new position, Perez will focus her attention on creating HR accountability across government and ensuring the observance of merit systems principles in agency HR operations.
