Stephen Warren is due to step down as the Department of Veterans Affairs‘ deputy chief information officer Aug. 28 to become the next CIO at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, FCW reported Thursday.
Adam Mazmanian writes Warren has led VA’s information technology organization for almost two and a half years.
He told FCW in an email that the department implemented an electronic system to process veteran benefits applications as well as increased the volume of healthcare data it shares with the Defense Department during his tenure.
Last month, the Senate approved the nomination of LaVerne Council for the VA CIO post.
Warren will join OCC on Sept. 6 and be responsible for managing the agency’s IT budget, the report said.
He succeeds Edward Dorris, who now serves as CIO of the National Credit Union Administration.
