Department of Defense
Vacant; John Sherman, acting
Dana Deasy resigned as CIO of the DOD at the end of the Trump administration, after nearly three years in the role. His legacy will largely be associated with trying to launch the department’s contentious $10 billion Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) cloud contract and bringing the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC) to life. While the position, which requires Senate confirmation, is left vacant, John Sherman, principal deputy CIO, will fill in.
