The Federation of Government Information Processing Councils and the Industry Advisory Council paid tribute this month to Alan Balutis, who resigned in January after two years as the groups' executive director and chief operating officer.

Since leaving FGIPC/IAC, Balutis has been named president and chief operating officer of Veridyne Inc., an IT consulting and software company based in Broomall, Pa. He also had formed a consulting firm, ICG Government, with Paul Brubaker, former deputy CIO of the Agriculture Department and Donald Upson, former Virginia secretary of technology.

ICG has agreed to work with Input Inc., a market research firm in Chantilly, Va., to provide advice and consulting services to vendors. [IMGCAP(2)]An Input official said Balutis would be able to continue consulting on a part-time basis with ICG Government.

Balutis socializes at his farewell event with Mitzi Mead of Mercury Interactive Corp. of Sunnyvale, Calif.
