Takai may still become DoD CIO
Thursday - 9/30/2010, 5:37pm EDT
But it doesn't mean Takai won't end up in the position. The CIO's functions will move to the Defense Information Systems Agency, where the position will be "re-fashioned."
Sources have told Federal News Radio that Takai could be named to the post within a matter of weeks. Since her position will no longer include the title of assistant secretary of defense, Takai won't need to go through the confirmation process.
Defense Deputy Secretary William Lynn said earlier this week that the position will be strengthened and will report directly to the Defense Secretary Robert Gates.
The position change comes after Gates eliminated the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Networks and Information Integration, which is where the CIO's office was located.
