Linda Burek has left her job as deputy assistant attorney general for IRM and deputy CIO at the Justice Department to take over as CIO of Maryland. She replaces Alisoun K. Moore.

Jim Gallagher will be the acting deputy assistant attorney general for IRM at Justice until the position is filled, a department spokeswoman said.

A Senate committee recently approved the nomination of John H. Marburger III as the director of the White House's Office of Science and Technology Policy.

Marburger was director of the Energy Department's Brookhaven National Laboratory from 1998 until his confirmation.

The Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation approved Marburger's nomination. The committee also approved Phillip Bond's nomination to be the Commerce Department's undersecretary for technology.
