EPA chief technology officer Day to leave

Mark Day, chief technology officer at the Environmental Protection Agency, is leaving his post to join the private sector.

Day, who served as CTO at the agency since 1999, will take the same position at systems integrator McDonald Bradley Inc. of Herndon, Va., he said today.

In his new role, Day will be responsible for creating and implementing the company's technical strategy across all business units, and for ensuring alignment with federal IT plans and policy, the company said.

At EPA, Day oversaw the agency's $180 million Fee for Services IT program. He also created and managed the overall IT infrastructure and cybersecurity program for the agency, and oversaw development of all IT policy, business and operational plans.

He also helped implement the agency's response to the Federal Information Security Management Act, which consistently won an A grade.

Before joining EPA, Day served for several years as CIO at the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, Division of Environmental Quality.

Day also is an adjunct professor of information management in the Public Administration Masters Program at George Mason University.
