ODIN chief leaves NASA for systems security post at NSA

Mark Hagerty, a longtime NASA outsourcing executive, has left the space agency to join the National Security Agency.

He started at NSA on Feb. 25 and was promoted to the Senior Executive Service.

Hagerty said his new job is in the NSA's CIO office and is concerned with mission assurance. He could not elaborate further, except to say he will not be directly involved with NSA's Groundbreaker IT outsourcing project.

Hagerty was program manager for the Outsourcing Desktop Initiative for NASA . He said he is glad to be at a job where he is not managing outsourcing.

"I've done enough of that," he said today at the Information Processing Interagency Council conference in Orlando, Fla.

Hagerty spent 11 years at NASA. Before that he worked for the Defense Department and the Federal Aviation Administration in IT roles. He is a vice president of the Government Information Technology Council, which sponsors the IPIC conference.
