The White House plans to nominate Air Force Maj. Gen. Dale Meyerrose as the first CIO of the newly created Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

Meyerrose has experience in organizing new offices. Named CIO of NORAD in June 2000, he was given additional responsibility in October 2002 as the first CIO for U.S. Northern Command.

The IRS has named Arthur Gonzalez deputy CIO. He has been deputy associate CIO for the tax agency's Information Technology Services for the past year.

Prior to coming to the IRS, Gonzalez was CIO and senior vice president with Oxford Health Plans in Trumbull, Conn.

Recently retired Army Col. Joseph 'Tom' Catudal, who served in Iraq as the Coalition Provisional Authority's CIO, has joined Segovia Inc. of Herdon, Va., as its senior vice president for engineering and operations.

Catudal's 26-year Army career also included assignments as the Office of the Army's CIO/G6 and as deputy director of Information Operations, Networks and Space. He was instrumental in restoring networking and communications to the Pentagon following Sept. 11, 2001.

The Small Business Administration has elevated Charles T. McClam from deputy CIO to acting CIO. McClam will oversee the agency's information technology policy and ensure it complies with the President's Management Agenda.

McClam replaces Jerry Williams, who left SBA in June to be deputy CIO at the Agriculture Department.

SBA has been without a permanent CIO since Stephen Galvan became the agency's chief of staff in August 2004. Galvan became SBA's acting deputy administrator in July.

The agency also named Shivani Desai as the new project manager for its Business Gateway E-Government project, one of the 25 initiatives sponsored by the Office of Management and Budget.

Desai joined SBA in July after spending more than 18 months as an OMB portfolio manager for the government-to-business e-government projects. She replaces Justin Van Epps, who had been interim project manager since June 2004.
