Navy, GSA in search of tech leaders

Navy CIO Carey expected to take on new duties; GSA looking for a deputy CIO

Navy Chief Information Officer Robert Carey is expected to leave his position by the end of summer but will continue to work in the Navy Department. He’s moving to another senior position, although the job hasn't been clearly defined yet, according to GovInfoSecurity.com.

Carey, who has been the Navy’s CIO for four years, told his staff June 15 that Navy Undersecretary Robert Work asked him to take on the new responsibilities, according to the GovInfoSecurity report.

Carey was the first government CIO blogger. In an interview with Federal Computer Week, he said the blog opened communications with the department’s personnel and employees, who understand the issues that the Navy CIO should focus on.

Carey has been co-chairman of the Federal CIO Council’s Information Security and Identity Management Subcommittee.
