People on the Move

Maj. Gen. Charles Croom

The IRS has appointed Janice Lambert as chief financial officer, making her responsible for the accounting of $2 trillion in taxpayer receipts and the tax agency's $10 billion annual operating budget. She also will be its chief adviser on financial and performance management, financial systems, strategic planning and internal controls.

Lambert became acting CFO in January, when Eileen Powell resigned. The IRS made the announcement May 13, although the agency designated her CFO on March 7, an IRS spokesman said.

Lambert came to the IRS as deputy CFO last June from the Treasury Department, where she was budget director.

Incoming Air Force CIO Lt. Gen. William T. 'Tom' Hobbins recently announced several new staff members:

Rob Thomas II, who served as assistant deputy chief of staff to Hobbins in the warfighting integration office, will be his deputy.

Maj. Gen. Charles Croom, who was director of command, control, computers, communications, surveillance, intelligence and reconnaissance in the warfighting integration office, will be director of information, services and integration, reporting to Hobbins.

Maj. Gen. Gregory Power, who was director of C4ISR and deputy chief of staff for Hobbins, was named director of operations and support integration.

David Tillotson III will be the new director of policy, planning and resources. He previously served as director of architecture and operational support modernization and as deputy chief of staff in the warfighting integration office.

President Bush recently nominated Richard L. Skinner, the Homeland Security Department's acting inspector general, to officially take the helm. The Senate must confirm the appointment.

Skinner has been the department's acting IG since Clark Kent Ervin's recess appointment expired on Dec. 8.
