HHS awards $1.5M to health data pilots
September 28, 2016
The Department of Health and Human Services awarded $1.5 million Wednesday to seven groups through cooperative agreements to improve the transfer of health data.
Bajinder Paul, deputy associate administrator of citizen services and innovative technologies at the General Services Administration, is soon leaving the agency, a GSA official with knowledge of the situation told FedScoop.
Paul will take over as chief information officer at the Federal Trade Commission, replacing Jeff Huskey, who stepped down in March. Paul’s last day at GSA will be this Friday, according to a senior official at FTC.
Paul is no stranger to the government CIO role, having served as CIO at the Office of Comptroller of the Currency for four years and as acting CIO and deputy CIO of IT operations at the Housing and Urban Development Department.
He has also held major IT management positions at the Justice Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
