OMB fills long-vacant OIRA post

OMB fills long-vacant OIRA post

APRIL 12—The Office of Management and Budget yesterday officially named Daniel Chenok chief of information policy and technology at the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.

The move fills a job that has been vacant since Bruce McConnell left more than a year ago to become director of the International Year 2000 Cooperation Center [see story at www.gcn.com/archives/gcn/1999/January25/3a.htm].

Chenok has been acting chief since September, OMB officials said. Before joining OIRA, Chenok was with OMB's Human Resources and Housing Branch.

McConnell became OIRA policy chief in 1992. He recently left government after 15 years for the private sector [see story at www.gcn.com/vol19_no2/community/1184-1.html].

The chief of information policy and technology is largely responsible for setting OMB information technology policy.
