Basla to be named Air Force CIO following Lord's July departure
Tuesday - 1/10/2012, 8:41pm EST
Taking over for Lord, who was named chief of warfighting integration and CIO in July 2009, will be Lt. Gen. Michael Basla.
Basla, who now serves as the vice commander of the Air Force Space Command, has been selected to serve as the chief information officer, according to his official biography on the Air Force website.
FedScoop was the first to report the news of Lord's departure Tuesday morning.
Before becoming the service's CIO, Lord served for two years as the commander of its provisional Cyberspace Command at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana.
While at Space Command, Basla helped implement and manage enterprise IT for the Air Force and played a key role in IT efficiency savings. The Air Force has set an ambitious goal of $2.3 billion in IT savings.
"Nothing is off the table, and as the nation works toward a financial recovery, we'll likely break a few paradigms," Basla said of those efforts at a symposium late last year hosted by the U.S. Strategic Command.
