Lisa Schlosser, an Environmental Protection Agency official, will join the Office of Management and Budget as federal Chief Information Officer Vivek Kundra’s deputy administrator in the Office of E-Government and Information Technology, according to various media reports.
Schlosser, now the principal deputy associate administrator for EPA’s Office of External Affairs and Environmental Education, is reported to start her new position in early July.
In an email to Federal News Radio, Kundra said Schlosser would bring 25 years of experience to the E-Gov team, including stints in both the public and private sectors and in military and civilian and civilian agencies. “Her knowledge and diversity of experience will be invaluable to our continued efforts to cut waste and improve critical services the American people depend upon by changing the way the federal government manages IT,” he added.
Before joining EPA in 2008, Schlosser served as CIO of the Department of Housing and Urban Development as well as associate CIO and chief information security officer at the Transportation Department.
She has experience in the private sector as well, having served as vice president for business operations for Global Integrity as well as a senior manager at Ernst & Young. Schlosser began her career as a Military Intelligence Officer with the U.S. Army, and she continues to serve as an officer in the Army Reserves.
