Boutelle tapped to be Army CIO

President Bush has nominated Army Maj. Gen. Steven W. Boutelle for promotion to lieutenant general and assignment as the Army's CIO.

Defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld today said Bush had made the nomination, which implies the retirement of current Army CIO Lt. Gen. Peter Cuviello, who has held the job since 2000. One of Cuviello's primary objectives during his tenure was development of the Army Knowledge Online portal.

Boutelle currently is director of information operations, networks and space in the Army CIO office.
