FCW : May 15, 2014
McClure leaving GSA David McClure, associate admin- istrator of the General Services Administration’s Office of Citizen Services and Communications, is retiring from the agency. McClure told FCW he is leaving GSA at the end of May but declined to discuss his future plans in detail. His tenure at GSA has included sweeping programs aimed at man- aging the government’s migration to cloud environments and more inno- vative approaches to IT contracting. He has also been a leading advo- cate for the Obama administration’s cloud-first policy. McClure shepherded one of the government’s key cloud initiatives, the Federal Risk and Autho- rization Management Program, through the interagency review and approval process. His efforts to improve federal IT and eliminate inefficiencies across government have earned him FCW’s Federal 100 award four times. In 2012, he won FCW’s Eagle award for his leader- ship on GSA’s infrastructure-as-a - service contract, which allows agen- cies to buy IT services as needed rather than buying and maintaining more hardware. — Mark Rockwell Franz takes over INSCOM The U.S . Army has named Maj. Gen. George Franz III commanding gen- eral of its Intelligence and Security Command at Fort Belvoir, Va. The command is a main Army center for information security and has per- sonnel in 180 locations worldwide. Franz was previously commander of the Cyber National Mission Force at U.S. Cyber Command in Fort Meade, Md., where he was respon- sible for developing, training and structuring the nation’s cyber mis- sion forces. He also produced the first cyber forces concept of opera- tions. His work earned him a 2014 Federal 100 award. — Sean Lyngaas FirstNet leader D’Agostino resigns Bill D’Agostino, the day-to-day lead- er of the effort to build a nationwide interoperable broadband public safety network, is stepping down after a year on the job. Deputy Gen- eral Manager T.J. Kennedy is taking over management immediately while a replace- ment is sought, according to the First Responder Network Authority. FirstNet, an inde- pendent organiza- tion within the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, is designing and building a high-speed broadband network with the goal of eliminating the interop- erability limitations that continue to plague first responders. A statement released by FirstNet said D’Agostino, a former Verizon executive, was resigning for per- sonal reasons and that a search is underway for a replacement. — Adam Mazmanian DISA’s Bennett shifts to private sector Bruce Bennett, a former deputy chief technology officer at the Defense Information Systems Agency, is now an executive consultant at Suss Consulting. Bennett was also DISA’s program executive officer for satellite com- munications and chief engineer for the Defense Information Systems Network, the agency’s global tele- com network. At DISA, he was in charge of the engineering of terrestrial and com- mercial satellite communications, among other duties. He pushed programs toward “everything over IP” and called for culture change at the Defense Department to drive technology adoption, according to Suss. — Sean Lyngaas Johnson joins Center for American Progress Clay Johnson — the outspoken tech- nologist, author and former presi- dential innovation fellow — is join- ing the Center for American Progress as a senior fellow. Johnson is also the founder and CEO of the Department of Better Technology, which focuses on developing gov- ernment IT solutions. Johnson said the fellow- ship “has no implications” for DBT. “A commercial social venture isn’t the right home for a lot of the policy and reform work that I do with the federal government,” he said. “The Center for American Progress is.” In his role as a 2012 presidential innovation fellow, Johnson worked on the RFP-EZ procurement system. In 2010, he won a Federal 100 award for his work as director of Sunlight Labs. Johnson’s work at the center will focus on issues concerning govern- ment technology, including procure- ment reform and open government data. — Reid Davenport FCW INSIDER David McClure Trending is the cost reduction in commercial cloud storage due to recent price wars 68% 10 May 15, 2014 FCW.COM Clay Johnson
