The Office of the Director of National Intelligence said Sherrill Nicely, deputy chief information officer, has assumed the role of acting CIO while Patrick Gorman, the acting CIO, is on leave.
ODNI did not say why Gorman was on leave or for how long. Gorman has served as acting CIO since late last year, after then-CIO Dale Meyerrose left the agency. Meyerrose joined Harris Corp. as vice president and general manager of cyber and information assurance in January.
Nicely, who was named ODNI deputy CIO in November 2008, previously served as the deputy associate director of national intelligence for intelligence community information technology governance. Before that she served as director for information assurance in the ODNI CIO office.
