Ladner to leave Treasury
Drew Ladner submitted his resignation as Treasury Department chief information officer to President Bush. Ladner is returning to industry and will leave his post April 30. He became CIO in March 2003.
Information on his replacement and future plans was not available.
The CIO position is being converted back to a career appointment from a political appointment, now that the reasons for converting it to a political position -- to reform IT governance, boost IT security and invigorate e-government -- are complete, said a Treasury staff member who didn't wish to be identified.
