Stouffer is EPA's first chief technology officer

Debra Stouffer has become the Environmental Protection Agency's first chief technology officer. She previously was deputy CIO at the Housing and Urban Development Department, a position she had held since May 1999. Earlier this month Stouffer finished a 90-day detail with the Office of Management and Budget.


William Taylor, who has been acting as deputy CIO during Stouffer's stint at OMB, will continue in this role until HUD names a replacement.


At OMB, Stouffer led the development of an architecture plan for the 24 e-government initiatives. Bob Haycock, an information resources manager in the Denver office of the Bureau of Reclamation, took over Stouffer's federal architecture work at OMB. He also is on a 90-day detail.


Stouffer, who took her new post May 20, will focus on enterprise architecture, capital planning and project management efforts, and assess the use of new and emerging technologies at EPA.


"I need to understand EPA's culture and business environment and apply one of the various CTO models that is out there," Stouffer said. "At OMB, we set a good architecture foundation for others to build upon."
