The announcement went out yesterday morning - President Bush has nominated a new CIO for EPA, to replace Kim Nelson, who left late last year. The new CIO is Molly O'Neill, who has been heading EPA's Environmental Council of States (ECOS) efforts within the Exchange Network for bringing data in from the states. To date, Linda Travers had been filling the post as acting AA. Hopefully O'Neill will bring her experience in what's involved in integration of data from external sources toward further supporting ongoing efforts for internal integration and SOA.
I have been working extensively on the Geospatial side, toward mapping and modelling as-is and to-be architectures for the entire horizontal sector of Geobusiness across EPA. "Line of Business" is becoming a major issue within OMB these days, and Geospatial processes may be part of that equation. I also has been preparing for a presentation on MetaCarta to Linda Travers - this may now become my introduction to the new CIO instead.
