Interior's Sue Rachlin to retire

Sue Rachlin, the Interior Department's deputy CIO, will retire May 3 after 32 years of government service.

Rachlin has worked at Interior since December 2000 where she is responsible for the department's implementation of the Clinger-Cohen Act and overseeing IT policy.

She worked closely with the CIO Council for the last few years as co-chairwoman of the Best Practices Subcommittee. She and her co-chairman, Agency for International Development CIO John Marshall, worked with industry to write several white papers, including one of the first on IT portfolio management, six on best practices learned by separate e-government initiatives and on the Labor Department's project management lessons learned.

Before coming to Interior, Rachlin was chief of agency applications services at the Agriculture Department's National Information Technology Center in Fort Collins, Colo.
