“One of the longest serving chief information officers is retiring. Joe Klimavicz, the Justice Department CIO and deputy assistant attorney general in the Justice Management Division, announced to staff he is leaving federal service after almost 40 years.”
“Klimavicz has been CIO at Justice since 2014 and vice chairman of the CIO Council since May 2018.
“Closing this chapter of my career, I am excited and energized by what opportunities lie ahead of me, however I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge the bittersweet nature of this transition,” Klimavicz wrote to staff in an email, which Federal News Network obtained. “During my tenure in leading OCIO and service as deputy assistant attorney general within the Justice Management Division, I have operated under the mantra that we need to keep pace with innovation. Every decision I have made has been grounded by that resolution to drive the Department of Justice toward a more modern approach to mission delivery and evidence-based governance.” Read the full article here.
