OMB fills IT policy post

OMB fills IT policy post

Filling a longtime vacancy, the Office of Management and Budget last week named Daniel Chenok chief of information policy and technology at OMB's Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.

Chenok had been acting chief since September. Previously, Chenok was a staff member of OMB's Human Resources and Housing Branch.

The OIRA post had been vacant since Bruce McConnell left more than a year ago to direct the International Year 2000 Cooperation Center. McConnell recently left government after having served at OMB since 1985 [GCN, Jan. 24, Page 58].

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