Georgia CIO Singer resigns

Georgia CIO Larry Singer today announced his resignation, effective Dec. 9. Singer also was executive director of the Georgia Technology Authority. He will return to Public Interest Breakthroughs, a nonprofit consulting company where he worked before becoming the state's CIO two and a half years ago.

Before he leaves, Singer will help negotiate plans for the Converged Communications Outsourcing Project, a program to upgrade the state's telecommunications services, especially in remote areas of the state.

In his tenure as CIO, Singer said he was most excited about working to improve the relationship between citizens and government through e-government initiatives such as the state's Web portal, electronic voting and online driver's license renewal. 'I wouldn't have missed it for the world,' he said.
