"I think Linda s going to have a number of options of things she could do," he said. "Now the question is pull- ing the trigger on which way she ll go. I m hoping she ll come back on the other side and support a lot of the same issues from the industry side. She ll have to decide how much she wants to work and...how much she plays." What's next for NASA Cureton is in the process of turn- ing her duties over to subordinates, and because much of her work was focused on IT reform, many of her responsibilities will fall to Gary Cox, NASA s deputy CIO for IT reform. Cox is one of three deputy CIOs Cureton handpicked during her tenure who are now likely candidates for her job. Deborah Diaz, NASA s deputy CIO, and Valarie Burks, deputy CIO for IT security, round out a potential list of internal candidates. However, it remains unclear whom NASA s leaders will select to replace Cureton. "NASA would need someone who can keep the momentum going," Bruce said. "The transformation going on is dif cult. Hopefully, they won t regress to the risk aversion that s not unusual in engineering organizations." Cureton declined to say who she believes is the best t for the posi- tion. "I have some thoughts, but the agency will ultimately make its own decisions," she said. Bruce threw some other names into the mix: Michael Bolger, acting dep- uty director of NASA s John F. Ken- nedy Space Center, and Larry Sweet, IT director and CIO at the Johnson Space Center. "NASA is a dif cult culture, so hav- ing someone who understands [it] is a plus," Bruce said. "The deputy for IT reform [Cox] would be most knowl- edgeable and experienced on I3P [and] would be a good choice also." "Linda won t be easy to replace," NASA's constellation of CIOs CIO: Linda Cureton CIO, Ames Research Center: Jerry Davis CIO, Hugh L. Dryden Flight Research Center: Lawrence Freudinger CIO, John H. Glenn Research Center: William Humphries CIO, Goddard Space Flight Center: Adrian Gardner CIO, Jet Propulsion Laboratory: James Rinaldi CIO, Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center: Larry Sweet CIO, John F. Kennedy Space Center: Michael Bolger CIO, Langley Research Center: Jeffrey Seaton CIO, John C. Stennis Space Center: Dinna Cottrell CIO (acting), Headquarters IT and Communications Division: Victor Thompson Deputy CIO: Deborah Diaz Deputy CIO for IT Reform: Gary Cox Deputy CIO for IT Security: Valarie Burks Associate CIO for Enterprise Service and Integration: Jen-Chow Duh Associate CIO for Capital Planning and Governance: Gene Sullivan said Darren Ash, CIO at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and president of the American Council for Technol- ogy. "Her replacement will need to be a strong partner to the programmatic and space ight center leaders...[a] strong strategic thinker and a trusted adviser to the NASA administrator." Whoever takes over will have big shoes to ll, and though the IT depart- ment has taken a giant leap forward in recent years, many challenges remain and it will not be easy to keep the momentum going. "There are some things I will miss certainly with an agency like NASA and its fabulous mission," Cureton said before letting out a deep breath. "And there will be some things I will not miss." ■ March 15, 2013 FCW.COM 21
