The Australian Crime Commission has today begun its search for a new chief information officer after its former candidate left for another government CIO position.

The CIO, who will be based in Canberra, would have three direct reports and would be offered remuneration of $99,354 to $111,942, according to the advertisement on the Crime Commission's site today.

The last time the Commission advertised for a CIO, it offered a slightly higher salary at $125,000 plus vehicle.

Until a new CIO is found, the Crime Commission was under the leadership of an acting CIO, Andrew Cann.

According to Cann's LinkedIn profile, he started out as a policeman at Western Australian Police, specialising in intelligence before studying IT. He started working for the Crime Commission in 2005.

Cann is modest about his new status in his profile. "Many colleagues leaving has allowed me to do a 'Bradbury' and I've ended up in charge of a good group of people," he said.

The former CIO Joseph Stablum left the Crime Commission to become the Australian Competition and Crime Commission's first CIO in January.
