Since April, Levine has been deputy assistant administrator of EPA's Office of Environmental Information and the agency's acting CIO.

Levine came to EPA after extensive experience in state government. From 1993 until early last year, he was policy coordinator for the Office of Policy and Budget in Florida's Executive Office of the Governor.

In the early 1990s, he was director of government affairs for Electronic Data Systems Corp.'s western region, and before that was senior policy coordinator for the Office of Financial Management for Washington state.

The Tallahassee, Fla., native has a master's degree in political science from Florida State University.

John T. Spotila has left his post as administrator of the Office of Management and Budget's Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs to become chief operating officer of GTSI Corp. of Chantilly, Va.

Spotila joined OMB in 1998, coordinating information policy for the White House. He also had been chairman of the Chief Information Officers Council, supported electronic-government initiatives, and promoted security and privacy measures. Before coming to OMB, Spotila was general counsel for the Small Business Administration.

As COO, he will direct GTSI's day-to-day operations, also holding the titles of executive vice president and general counsel, the company said.

The Geological Survey's Jay Donnelly was honored recently for his work in developing the electronic version of the National Atlas of the United States, which offers several new features in addition to being available on the Internet.

The Association for Federal Information Resources Management gave Donnelly its November Leadership Award for the site, at nationalatlas.gov.

Work on the site began in 1997 under Donnelly's direction and with the cooperation of more than 20 agencies and government organizations.

It involved updating what was then the current, paper version of the National Atlas while incorporating additional statistical data. The online version now includes, for example, a map showing the spread of the West Nile Virus over time.
