People on the Move

John Sindelar, the General Services Administration's deputy associate administrator for governmentwide policy, will split his time between the Office of Management and Budget and GSA to help OMB kick-start its business consolidation initiatives.

The move is part of OMB's stepped-up efforts on the initiatives'called by some the next wave of e-government projects. OMB is planning a meeting March 18 to launch work on the projects.

Sindelar said his role will be similar to that of a program manager, the role he played in getting the 25 Quicksilver e-government projects off the ground.

'I will work with the project leaders to make sure the projects are on track and meeting the deliverables laid out for each of them,' he said.

Sindelar said he will work with project managers to identify by Sept. 1 possible consolidation projects, so they can be included in the president's fiscal 2006 budget request.

Glenn Schlarman is the new chief of the Information Policy Branch in the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.

Schlarman has been associate CIO for information security at the Energy Department for the last two years. He replaces Dan Chenok, who left OMB in December to join SRA International Inc. of Fairfax, Va. Before going to Energy, Schlarman spent seven years as a senior policy analyst at OIRA.

During Schlarman's more than 20-year federal career, he also worked as an FBI analyst.

Retired Army Col. John R. Grobmeier has joined NCI Information Systems Inc. to manage the Army IT enterprise solutions program for the Reston, Va., company. Most recently, Grobmeier was director of Army information technology transformation for Computer Sciences Corp.

Before the CSC job, Grobmeier held numerous high-level IT positions during his 26 years with the military, including program manager of the Tactical Radio Communications Systems and director of IT acquisition for the Army
