People on the Move

Lt. Gen. Steven W. Boutelle

Lt. Gen. Peter Cuviello

The Senate recently confirmed President Bush's nomination of Lt. Gen. Steven W. Boutelle as the next Army CIO.

Boutelle, who this month also was promoted from major general to lieutenant general, will replace Lt. Gen. Peter Cuviello, who is retiring in early July after three years as the head of Army IT operations. Boutelle currently is director of information operations, networks and space in the Army CIO office.

'I think Gen. Cuviello has had a great vision in transforming the Army from a legacy Army into a networked Army,' Boutelle said in an interview with GCN. Boutelle said he would continue Cuviello's efforts to 'seamlessly network the entire Army with the joint world.'

One of Cuviello's primary objectives during his tenure was development of the Army Knowledge Online portal.

W. Todd Grams is the IRS' new CIO.

Commissioner Mark W. Everson tapped Grams to move over from his post as chief financial officer to replace John Reece, who left the IRS in February after two years at the helm of the agency's modernization efforts.

Grams began working for the IRS in February 2001, and under his leadership the agency received its first-ever clean financial audit from the General Accounting Office. He previously worked for the Veterans Affairs Department and Office of Management and Budget. Grams also will get a new boss, John Dalrymple, who was named deputy commissioner for operations support.

Dalrymple will oversee the agency's CFO, chief human capital officer and Agencywide Shared Services offices, as well as IT and physical security operations.

President Bush has nominated Joshua Bolten to replace Mitchell E. Daniels Jr. as the director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Bolten is the White House deputy chief of staff and is one of Bush's closest advisers on economic and domestic policy.

Daniels announced his resignation last month; his last day is Wednesday. There is speculation that he will run for governor of Indiana.

Before joining the administration, Bolten was the policy director for Bush's presidential campaign. He also was the executive director for legal and government affairs for Goldman Sachs International of London, served in the previous Bush administration and worked for the Senate Finance Committee.
