EPA's technology chief moves to industry

Debra Stouffer, chief technology officer of the Environmental Protection Agency and president of the Association for Federal Information Resources Management, is leaving government to join DigitalNet Inc. of Bethesda, Md., as vice president of consulting services.

'I believe that DigitalNet can make a significant contribution in supporting e-government efforts,' Stouffer said in an e-mail. 'Understanding government's challenges, I'll be in a position to offer quality solutions to federal, state and local government organizations.'

Stouffer said she would begin working with DigitalNet around Feb. 1. Her initial focus will be consulting on the Clinger-Cohen Act, capital planning investment control and enterprise architecture planning.

Stouffer became EPA's first CTO in May, 2002 (Click here for background story). Previously, she had been on detail at the Office of Management and Budget for 90 days and was the Housing and Urban Development Department's CIO beginning in 1999.
