Stouffer joins EPA
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 held since May 1999. In May, 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 that role until HUD names a replacement.
At OMB, Stouffer led 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 the EPA 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.
