MARCH 14—Arthur L. Money today confirmed rumors that he will soon leave his post as chief information officer and assistant Defense Department secretary for command, control, communications and intelligence, said Susan Hansen, a DOD spokeswoman.

Money, who will leave his post in mid-April, was a holdover from the Clinton administration and will be replaced by a Bush appointee, she said.

He has not announced further plans, Hansen said. Money became CIO in February 1998. He has more than 40 years of management and engineering experience with the defense electronics and intelligence industry.

He served as CIO and assistant secretary of the Air Force for research, development and acquisition from January 1996 to February 1998.

Money was president of ESL Inc., a subsidiary of TRW Inc. that develops electronics systems, from January 1990 to December 1994.

He has a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from San Jose State University and a master's degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Santa Clara.
