DoD's Wennergren combining skills in new position
Wednesday - 10/20/2010, 6:01pm EDT
The truth, however, is Wennergren's new position combines the best of both worlds for him — technology and business process improvements.
He will be working for DoD deputy chief management officer Beth McGrath, who used to hold the assistant deputy job before the Senate confirmed her in her new role earlier this year.
Wennergren said he is looking forward to continuing his work with McGrath. He said she was one of the CIO office's key partners around standards, interoperability and systems modernization.
Wennergren doesn't yet know what exactly he will be doing as assistant deputy chief management officer beyond working on the CMO's wide ranging priorities.
He said he will stay around until Teri Takai is named the new DoD CIO and will help with her transition.
Along with leaving as DoD's deputy CIO, Wennergren no longer will be the vice chairman of the federal CIO Council. He has been vice chairman for five years and worked closely with the council for eight years.
