Burek resigns from post as Maryland CIO

Linda D. Burek resigned Monday from her job as Maryland's CIO. Her resignation comes less than two months after a Baltimore Business Journal article revealed Burek's past experience with Software Performance Systems Inc. of Arlington, Va., a company that was the lead contender for an enterprise architecture contract with the state (www.gcn.com/21_17/news/19178-1.html).

During Burek's tenure as Maryland CIO, the state faced a sharp budget downturn, an anthrax scare and the threat of terrorist attacks.

Burek was appointed CIO in November 2001. She had been deputy CIO of the U.S. Justice Department for four years.
