Tech executive nominated for Defense CIO

Francis Joseph Harvey, a Maryland technology company executive, has been nominated to replace Defense Department CIO John Stenbit, who plans to retire.

Although Stenbit has yet to set a specific date for his retirement, President Bush yesterday nominated Harvey, vice chairman of Duratek Inc. The Columbia, Md., comapny provides radioactive waste services.

Harvey previously was the chief operating officer of the industries and technology group at Westinghouse Electric Co. He also earlier was president of Westinghouse's electronic systems group.

Stenbit still has numerous items on his calendar through February, said Lt. Col. Ken McClellan, a Defense spokesman.

Stenbit became CIO and assistant secretary for networks and information integration in August 2001. His career spans more than 30 years in government and industry jobs related to telecommunications and command and control.
