OMB seeks new temporary chief for architect post

Bob Haycock

The Office of Management and Budget must replace chief architect Bob Haycock, whose detail will end come October.

Meanwhile, OMB officials are considering whether they need to create a permanent post to oversee enterprise architecture efforts and what such a job would entail, said Norman Lorentz, OMB's chief technology officer.

Haycock, who accepted the detail in May, will remain with OMB at least through this month, Lorentz said, adding that 'he's accomplished his objectives and more.'

Haycock's replacement will lead the still-developing Federal Enterprise Architecture Working Group.

OMB created the working group to monitor the architecture needs of OMB's Quicksilver initiatives. The group has 24 members, one representing each of the 24 e-government projects under the Quicksilver umbrella.
