Federal News Radio, which follows the inside game in Washington, D.C., has reported that California's Deputy Chief Information Officer Mike Locatis will take the top CIO post with the federal Department of Energy this week.
You'll recall that Locatis came from Colorado last summer. At the time, conventional wisdom was that he would take state CIO Teri Takai's job when she left of a Department of Defense job for which President Barack Obama nominated her. The DOD job hit a snag, however, and now it looks like her deputy will head east before she does.
Hat tip to state government IT guru John Thomas Flynn at TechLeader.TV for passing along the info to The State Worker.
