Dawn Meyerriecks is stepping down as assistant director of national intel- ligence for acquisition, technology and facilities at the Of ce of the Director of National Intelligence to accept a posi- tion as the CIA s deputy director for sci- ence and technology. She has held a variety of tech-related positions in the past decade, including senior vice president for product tech- nology at AOL, where her achievements included the relaunch of AOL Instant Mes- senger. She also served as a senior engineer at NASA s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and then as chief technology of cer at the Defense Information Systems Agency s Joint Interoperability and Engineering Organization. Meyerriecks, who was a judge for FCW s most recent Federal 100 awards, is a past Federal 100 win- ner and was GCN s Defense Executive of the Year in 2004. "The CIA is pleased to have Dawn s experience and expertise on the senior leadership team," CIA spokesman Pres- ton Golson said. In a statement, Director of Nation- al Intelligence James Clapper said, "Dawn has done truly incredible work at ODNI and leaves a legacy of aligning and integrating the acquisition, [science and technology] research and facilities communities" across the intelligence community. "The continued ascent of acquisition and technology in the IC is due in no small part to Dawn s vision and leadership, and she leaves a strong ODNI team in place to continue her work." Kevin Meiners, who previously served in the Of ce of the Undersec- retary of Defense for Intelligence, will replace Meyerriecks at ODNI. --- Frank Konkel It can take nine months to a year to green-light new mobile devices, appli- cations and operating systems at the Defense Department, a process that all too often renders the technology obso- lete before it is deployed. Now, plans are in the works that could slash that amount of time to 30 days. "We re trying to find ways to do things faster, more securely, cheaper and jumping the pro- ductivity curve," said Maj. Gen. Robert Wheeler, DOD s deputy CIO for command, control, communications, computers and information infrastructure capabilities. "Whether it s in Washington, D.C., the edge of the battle- eld or onto the battle eld, that s the challenge for us... to access what you need at any point in the world." Wheeler said the plan requires DOD leaders to change the way they make decisions about deploying technol- ogy. Of cials are also partnering with other agencies, including the National Institute of Standards and Technology, to make sure the accelerated process does not introduce new risks. In the various DOD components, the shift to a fast-tracked approval process is welcome news. "We have said from the very begin- ning that we re taking way too long to get devices onto approved lists, or to get appli- cations or anything like that," said Lt. Col. Anmy Torres, chief of cyber plans, trans- port and sustainment at the Air National Guard. "There are so many organizations with apps they ve developed to meet needs that all need to be in this [approved] environ- ment. A 30-day process would help us keep up with demand and still be in the window we can use them, since some [technologies] are so short-lived." --- Amber Corrin Dawn Meyerriecks takes tech job at CIA DOD targets aggressive mobile timelines 8 May 30, 2013 FCW.COM Trending senators signed a letter urging President Obama to intervene to reduce VA's backlog of veteran health claims 67 INK TANK Maj.
