Year-Long Search Finally Leads NASA to New CIO

Kim Mays

NASA has taken a year to search for its new CIO, and today the agency named Linda Cureton to the position, says InformationWeek. Cureton has been serving as the CIO for NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, but will now act as CIO for the whole agency.


Cureton has been known to advocate government use of cloud computing and drive the push toward the creation of a NASA social network called Spacebook. Her first major project includes the contracting of work for a major IT integration program that will cost more than $4 billion.


Acting CIO Bobby German will now return to his job as deputy CIO of the space agency.
