MARCH 28—An Army veteran who most recently served as principal director for the deputy assistant secretary of Defense has been chosen to replace Paul Brubaker as the Defense Department's deputy chief information officer.

Margaret Myers, who previously worked for Brubaker, has been named acting deputy assistant secretary of Defense and deputy CIO. She will work directly under Defense CIO Arthur Money until April 6, when Money retires. Brubaker left the department just over a week ago to head up global electronic government services for Commerce One Inc. of Pleasanton, Calif.

Myers said it is unclear how long she will serve in an acting capacity or whether she will be appointed to the position.

'I think that's a big unknown at this point,' Myers said. 'A lot of that will depend on who replaces Mr. Money.'

Defense spokeswoman Susan Hansen said Money's replacement has not been named.

Myers is a former director of information technology acquisition and investment for the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence. Before that, she worked for the U.S. Army Operational Evaluation Command.
