NOAA and National Weather Service gain CIOs

Barry C. West is the new CIO of the National Weather Service, succeeding Carl Staton, who has taken over the CIO mantle at the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration.

Commerce Department CIO Tom Pyke had been serving as the administration's CIO during the search for a new NWS systems chief. Pyke earlier told GCN he had planned to move Staton to the NOAA job when a candidate for the NWS post had been selected.

West will begin his new duties May 6. He is now deputy director for e-government in the General Services Administration's Governmentwide Policy Office. He previously worked at Commerce, the National Technical Information Service and the Census Bureau.
