FCW : October 2015
“category hallways” are now part of GSA’s Acquisition Gateway 17 October 2015 FCW.COM 9 The Partnership for Public Service announced its Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals to eight public servants in recognition of their outstanding achievements and efforts to improve the lives of Americans and the global community. Edward Hugler, deputy assistant secretary for operations at the Labor Department, received recognition for his work on securing sensitive econom- ic data before its release to the public; preventing Labor’s financial system from collapsing after its service pro- vider’s bankruptcy; and leading the cre- ation of Benefits.gov, which links citi- zens to more than 1,200 government assistance programs. Ron Ross, a fellow at the National Institute of Stan- dards and Technology, was honored for developing the first set of unified information security standards and guide- lines that aim to protect fed- eral agencies from malicious actors and reduce operating costs. Ross also won GCN’s Government Executive of the Year award. Accen- ture Federal Services CEO David Moskovitz took the industry honor, while NASA’s New Horizons mission team won GCN’s Tenacity Award for the decade-plus of IT planning and exe- cution needed to make this summer’s rendezvous with Pluto. More details on all the 2015 GCN Award winners are available at GCN.com. The General Services Administration and the Defense Contract Management Agency were among the winners of this year’s Excellence in Enterprise Architecture Awards, presented by FCW parent company 1105 Media, the Federated Enterprise Architec- ture Certification Institute and Zach- man International. GSA’s application rationalization project, led by Chief Enterprise Archi- tect Kevin Wince, trimmed 30 appli- cations from the agency’s portfolio and produced a nearly 1,600 percent return on investment. DCMA, led by Chief Enterprise Architect Theon Danet, was honored for its overall achievements in using EA, including its commitment to monitoring technol- ogy markets. President Barack Obama named Michael Missal to take over the Office of Inspector General at the Department of Veterans Affairs. Missal, a partner at Washington law firm K&L Gates, has conducted internal investigations on behalf of corporate clients, including those in the financial services, govern- ment contracting and technology fields. VA’s OIG has been without a Sen- ate-confirmed leader since January 2014. Acting Director Richard Grif- fin stepped down in July amid charges that he whitewashed internal probes into allegations that personnel tam- pered with scheduling software at VA medical centers. Former Department of Homeland Security CIO and current FCW col- umnist Richard Spires has been named CEO of Learning Tree. Spires has remained close to federal IT issues since he left DHS in 2013. He recently testified at a congressional hearing on the Office of Personnel Management data breach and is involved with ACT- IAC’s efforts to develop strategies for implementing the Federal IT Acquisi- tion Reform Act. Renee Wynn took over as NASA’s CIO in September. Before joining the agency in July as deputy CIO, she worked for 25 years at the Environ- mental Protection Agency. As NASA’s top IT official, Wynn will focus on some of the same areas her predecessor, Larry Sweet, had stressed, including increasing collabo- ration among NASA’s centers, strength- ening the agency’s IT security posture, and providing innovation through data analytics and visualization. Martha Dorris, director of strategic programs at GSA’s Office of Integrat- ed Technology Services, told her staff that she will retire from government on Oct. 31. Dorris, who took her first govern- ment job at age 18, told FCW that “GSA has been like my second home. I’ve grown up here.” But she wants to try her hand in the private sector after 34 years of public service. “I’ve had an entrepreneur- ial kind of mindset and spirit for a long time,” she said. A firm of her own is on the drawing board — with cus- tomer experience, acquisition and digi- tal service all part of the business plan. Peter Tseronis, the Energy Depart- ment’s CTO and associate CIO for tech- nology and innovation, is leaving his post at the end of October. He has been a federal employee for more than 24 years and is a three-time Federal 100 award winner. Venable has tapped Ari Schwartz to be the company’s managing director of cybersecurity services. Schwartz is best known for serving as senior director of cybersecurity at the White House. In his new role, Schwartz will pro- vide cybersecurity consulting services to the firm and help clients understand risk management strategies, including implementation of the White House’s Cybersecurity Framework, according to Venable. — FCW staff FCW Insider: People on the move From left: Ron Ross, Martha Dorris, David Moskovitz.
