People on the Move

Scott Charbo has been named the new CIO at the Agriculture Department, pending approval by the Senate. He takes over from Ira Hobbs, the department's deputy CIO, who has been acting CIO for 18 months.

Charbo has been working at the Farm Service Agency since July as director of the Office of Business and Program Integration.

Before joining Agriculture, Charbo was the president of mPower3 Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of ConAgra Foods Company, since 1998.

Frank E. Weber has taken over as executive director of the Air Force Standard Systems Group from Robert Frye, who retired.

Weber joined SSG last week following a decade with the Transportation Command at Scott Air Force Base, Ill., where he was deputy director for logistics and operations. A member of the Senior Executive Service, Weber has held many positions in his 27-year federal career, including several management stints at the Army.

Frye, whose career in military and civilian service spanned more than 30 years, had been in charge of SSG at Gunter Annex-Maxwell Air Force Base, Ala., since May 1995.

John Moeller, former staff director for the Federal Geographic Data Committee at the Interior Department, retired Aug. 3. He joined Northrop Grumman Corp.'s TASC Inc. of Chantilly, Va., on Aug. 19.

Moeller was project leader for the Geospatial One Stop initiative. Scott Cameron has taken his place.
