August 11, 2017: Jonathan Alboum has been re-assigned from his position as the Chief Information Officer at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Alboum has been appointed as the USDA Deputy Senior Procurement Officer. Alboum was the USDA CIO since June, 2015. A source told Federal News Radio that USDA officials have not appointed an Acting CIO. An Office of Management and Budget Spokesman said the agency had nothing to share at this time. A USDA Spokesman said in an e-mail sent to Federal News Radio that since these Senior Executive Service movements are still pending, and since they are personnel matters, they cannot comment on individual employee cases.
