People on the Move

Joseph Cipriano

Joseph Cipriano, the former program executive officer who oversaw the first steps of the $6.9 billion Navy-Marine Corps Intranet, has joined Lockheed Martin Corp.'s Information Technology division as vice president for advanced solutions.

Since 1999, Cipriano had been the Navy's PEO for IT. He worked on the NMCI contract until February, when the Navy established a new program office for the departmentwide network and appointed Rear Adm. Charles L. Munns to oversee the operations of the contract.

Cipriano was also in charge of developing the Defense Integrated Military Human Resource System and the Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System.

Cipriano, who worked for the government for more than 30 years, retired in mid-September from the Navy. He started working for Lockheed Martin's IT office in Seabrook, Md., on Oct. 14.

Steven Ehrler, who replaced Cipriano as the Navy's PEO-IT, credited his predecessor with starting the development of NMCI, the largest federal IT outsourcing contract in history.

The chief executive officers of two IT companies recently were named by the White House to the National Infrastructure Advisory Council.

New council members are Tom Noonan, chairman, president and CEO of Internet Security Systems Inc. of Atlanta, and Margaret Grayson, president and CEO of V-One Corp. of Germantown, Md.

The council is headed by Richard Clarke, President Bush's special adviser for cyberspace security.

Former South Carolina CIO Matthew DeZee has joined the digital government and technology office of American Management Systems Inc. of Fairfax, Va.
