Dunnington to leave NASA

Patricia Dunnington, NASA's chief information officer, has announced her resignation after spending her professional career at the space agency.

In the May 9 announcement she e-mailed to staff, Dunnington listed as agency accomplishments the implementation of an enterprise architecture, the deployment of a NASA-wide network architecture, LAN upgrades at NASA centers around the country and the start of a project to implement an agencywide common messaging service.

'No one person can accomplish these things alone'it takes teamwork and partnership, both internally and externally,' Dunnington wrote. 'I value those teams and partnerships that have brought multiple perspectives together in the best interest of this great agency.'

A NASA spokesman said that Dunnington has not set her departure date. There is no word yet on her replacement.
