OMB wants to find two replacements for Haycock

The Office of Management and Budget will replace chief architect Bob Haycock with two workers.

The agency is seeking a temporary replacement for Haycock, whose detail will end in October, as well as someone to take a permanent position as OMB's chief architect, said Norman Lorentz, OMB's chief technology officer.

OMB's plan is to have one person hold a permanent position as chief architect, and rotate other officials through an equal position on temporary detail to create a balance, Lorentz said.

Haycock, who accepted a temporary detail in May, will remain with OMB through this month, Lorentz said, although 'he's accomplished his objectives and more.'

Haycock replaced Debra Stouffer, who became the Environmental Protection Agency's chief technology officer at the end of May.

Haycock's permanent and temporary replacements will lead the still-developing Federal Enterprise Architecture Working Group, a 24-member committee that represents the enterprise architecture needs of each of OMB's Quicksilver e-government initiatives.
