Flyzik will advise Ridge on IT

Starting April 15, James Flyzik will go on detail as the senior adviser for IT on homeland security director Tom Ridge's staff.

Flyzik, acting assistant secretary for information systems at the Treasury Department, discussed his new assignment Saturday at the 4th Annual Connect for a Cure Black-Tie Gala to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

'I decided that I needed to do something to support homeland security,' said Flyzik, also Treasury's CIO. The new charge is not a burden, he said, adding that he has always been proud to be a federal employee.

Treasury deputy CIO Mayi Canales will take over as acting CIO and assistant secretary for information systems while Fkyzik is working in the Office of Homeland Security. Flyzik will return to his Treasury post Aug. 1.

The Federation of Government Information Processing Councils and the Industry Advisory Council co-sponsored the diabetes foundation fundraiser. At the gala, FGIPC and IAC honored Flyzik for his achievements in federal IT.
