Lorentz heads for private sector

Norman Lorentz will leave his post as the Office of Management and Budget's chief technology officer this month to join DigitalNet Inc., a Herndon, Va., IT company. His last day at OMB will be Sept. 19.

Lorentz, who oversaw OMB efforts to establish a federal enterprise architecture, said he's not sure whether he'll be replaced at OMB, because of OMB's plan to appoint a full-time chief architect.

As for his departure, Lorentz said it is for personal reasons not related to the management changes at OMB. "I would have been satisfied with supporting Karen Evans" had he stayed, he said. Evans is replacing Mark Forman as OMB's administrator of e-government and information technology.

Lorentz wanted to leave now, before the next budget cycle got started. "I didn't want to disrupt the process with the budget starting and Karen coming in," he said.

He will oversee DigitalNet's federal markets, work as an operational manager and participate in the strategic direction of the company, he said.
