A fond farewell for Stouffer

Stouffer gets a hug from Scott Hastings, CIO of the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

The Association for Federal Information Resources Managers said so long to Debra Stouffer last month with a reception in Washington.

Stouffer, who was AFFIRM president and chief technology officer of the Environmental Protection Agency, left government to take a job as vice president for consulting services for Digital Net Inc. of Bethesda, Md. Laura Callahan, deputy CIO of the Labor Department, has succeeded Stouffer as AFFIRM president.
