Lt. Gen. Harry Raduege

Dawn Meyerriecks, the Defense Information Systems Agency's chief technology officer since 1999, will leave DISA at the end of the month for the private sector.

Meyerriecks, widely regarded as an expert on network warfare and command and control, joined DISA in 1995. She previously worked as chief architect for the Army's Global Command and Control Office.

She recently discussed a major Defense Department initiative to replace the Global Command and Control System beginning in 2006, and has been heavily involved in the DOD's Net-Centric Enterprise Services initiative, the Teleport program and spectrum allocation.

Meyerriecks will work for America Online, a DISA spokeswoman said.

Air Force Lt. Gen. Harry Raduege, director of the Defense Information Systems Agency, will add two positions to his list of responsibilities. He has been tapped to command the Joint Task Force-Global Network Operations and to become deputy commander for global network operations and defense at the United States Strategic Command.

Tad Anderson, currently Office of Management and Budget associate administrator for e-government and IT, will return to the private sector Aug. 6, as vice president of Dutko Government Markets at the Dutko Group Cos. Inc. of Washington.

Anderson joined OMB as an e-government project portfolio manager in March 2002 and has been associate administrator since November. He pushed for completion of the 25 Quicksilver projects as well as performing other IT management oversight duties.

Maj. Gen. Paul D. Nielsen will retire from the Air Force on Aug. 1 and take over as chief executive officer and director of Carnegie Mellon University's Software Engineering Institute in Pittsburgh.

Nielsen, 53, until recently was commander of the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, and the service's chief technology officer.

Rock Regan, who gained prominence during more than seven years as Connecticut's CIO, is resigning from state service effective Aug. 1. 'I've had a pretty good run,' Regan wrote last week in an e-mail message to members of the National Association of State Information Resource Executives. He was president of the group from September 2001 to September 2002.
