State's Amin leaving CIO role temporarily

Kirit Amin stepped down suddenly after four years as the CIO of the Bureau of Consular Affairs to take a 120-day reassignment with the State Department CIO. He decried "cronyism and nepotism" at the State Department and said the bureau has entered into bad contracts. "The duplication and waste in government is phenomenal, and I was not going to put up with that crap nor will I put up with contractors who will rip off the government," Amin told Federal News Radio.
