Zeppieri to command TSA systems

The Transportation Security Administration late yesterday said that it had chosen Justice Department systems executive David Zeppieri to be its CIO.

TSA spokeswoman Deirdre O'Sullivan confirmed reports circulating in federal IT circles recently that Zeppieri would be the new TSA systems chief. He will begin working at TSA in mid-July, she said.

Zeppieri now is CIO of the Information Resources Management Division of Justice's Office of Justice Programs. He will succeed Pat Schambach, who left TSA to join PEC Solutions Inc. as general manager (Click for GCN story).

"The appointment makes sense considering what is going on with the IWIN program," an industry executive said yesterday. IWIN is a major project to equip government officials with interoperable wireless systems and involves extensive cooperation between the Homeland Security Department and Justice.

Justice is leading the IWIN project with assistance from the Treasury Department and DHS (Click for GCN story). Program leaders expect to release an IWIN statement of objectives, similar to a request for proposals, this summer.
