IRS names Gonzalez acting CIO

The IRS named Arthur Gonzalez acting CIO as of July 7, the same day then-CIO Todd Grams left the tax agency, an agency spokeswoman said. Gonzalez has been deputy CIO since August last year.

Grams resigned to become chief financial officer at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. He had served as IRS CIO since 2003 and before that as IRS chief financial officer.

Gonzalez has worked for the past year with Grams on the IRS' IT reorganization to reflect a unified view of its Modernization Information Technology and Security Services.

Prior to being deputy CIO, Gonzalez served as deputy associate CIO for IRS' Information Technology Services from September 2004.

Gonzalez has 25 years of IT management experience in financial services, retail, transportation and health care. Before coming to the IRS, he was CIO and senior vice president with Oxford Health Plans in Trumbull, Conn., where he oversaw IT services for the company's business units and business partners across four states.

He was also divisional vice president with K-mart Corp. in Troy, Mich., where he was responsible for application development and support services for financial and administrative systems.
