Denis Gusty

The General Services Administration has tapped Denis Gusty to head its Office of Intergovernmental Solutions.

Gusty came to GSA last month from the Labor Department. At Labor, he was the project manager of GovBenefits.gov, a Quicksilver e-government project. Jeff Koch took over as project manager.

Gusty replaced Martha Dorris, who had been the acting director since Frank McDonough retired in April of last year. Dorris became acting deputy associate administrator in GSA's Office of Citizen Services and Communications.

While at Labor, Gusty worked with 10 agencies to implement a portal that brought together 410 federal and 252 state benefit programs. He also was project director for systems development and technology support for the Bureau of Labor Statistics Office of Compensation and Working Conditions.

Tom Jarrett, Delaware's secretary of technology and CIO, has been elected president of the National Association of State CIOs.

Jarrett, whose election was announced at NASCIO's recent annual conference in New Orleans, succeeds Missouri CIO Gerry Wethington, who had served as the association's president for the past two terms.

Other new officers are vice president Matt Miszewski, Wisconsin CIO, and secretary and treasurer Val Oveson, Utah CIO.

Returning directors are:
  • Terry Savage, Nevada CIO

  • Teresa Takai, Michigan CIO

  • Richard Thompson, Maine CIO.

New directors are:
  • Jim Dillon, New York CIO

  • Otto Doll, South Dakota CIO

  • John Gillespie, Iowa CIO

  • Greg Jackson, Ohio CIO.

Separately, NASCIO's Corporate Leadership Council elected Pat Cummens of ESRI Inc. as its chairwoman. The council also elected Aldona Valicenti of Oracle Corp. and Rick Webb of Accenture Ltd. as vice chairs.

Computer Sciences Corp. has named Joseph Kehoe, a former commissioner for the IRS' Small Business and Self-Employed Division, to lead the contractor's new federal consulting practice. Kehoe left the IRS last year to join CSC.
