NASA Is Going To Need A New CIO

NASA CIO Renee Wynn Set to Retire

"NASA Chief Information Officer Renee Wynn is retiring on April 30, 2020, after 30 years in Federal service. She is one of the longest-serving departmental CIOs at NASA and in the Federal Government. Before coming to NASA, Wynn spent 25 years at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), where she served in several executive roles, including as acting CIO and deputy CIO. During her NASA tenure, Wynn said she had her work cut out for her. She was instrumental in improving the Agency's external reputation regarding cybersecurity and how information technology was managed at NASA."

Keith's note: To be brutally honest the NASA CIO organization has been totally ineffective for more than a decade. Hopefully Jim Bridenstine will hire someone who can fix the organization.

"(sigh) more IT babble from the NASA CIO. AS far as NASA's blatantly obvious byzantine website mess the CIO could have addressed at any time - but they did not. Have a look at these stories about NASA's creaky, mismanaged, and needlessly redundant cyber infrastructure - from just the past year or so. NASA's CIO has been asleep at the wheel for years. Its time for a reboot."

NASA's CIO Is Officially Angry About Her Commuter Bus Website (Update)

"As it happens this commuter bus tweet was not even made by Renee Wynn but rather by someone else who has access to the @NASACIO Twitter account (even though the face on the Twitter page is Renee Wynn's). This error went unnoticed for more than 5 hours hours until NASAWatch pointed it out. And it took another 5 hours before an indirect message was sent to me explaining what had happened. ... You can hardly blame people at NASA for ignoring the CIO organization when they do things like this."
