NASA's CIO, Patricia Dunnnington, is leaving her position, Federal Computer Week reports.
“Having accomplished the goals I set when I accepted the NASA CIO position, I feel this is the right time for me to move on to new challenges and opportunities in my career,” states a portion of her announcement. “I will continue serving in my position while a search is conducted to ensure a smooth transition."

“There is really no indication right now of if and when she will be leaving” the agency, NASA spokesman Doc Mirelson said today.

During Dunnington's tenure, NASA elevated the CIO’s role while restructuring the agency. NASA created an independent office for the CIO, a function previously located within the Office of the NASA Administrator.
